Default Colonoscopy-The Day After

I'm scheduled for my first Colonoscopy early on a Friday morning.

Any reason I won't be able to run offshore the next day?

I know all about the "prep" part, but I don't know about the "after" part. I've been invited to fish offshore on a 31' CC the next day.

Nope, might have a little gas but that probably isn't anything new

Not unless they have to remove any polyps, you could be a little sore.

Never heard of that. I had a colonoscopy including a polyp removal and once the anesthetic wore off it was as if nothing had happened that morning. Could have gone offshore that afternoon.

You have nothing to worry about.

You'll just feel violated. ....but for a good cause.

I was only 35 when I had mine done...both sphincters were explored - hiney and throat. Doc thought it would be a good idea to have both done while I was in there. Ended up being diagnosed with severe acid reflux.

I've had it. I'd suggest that as long as you've had at least one normal "movement" you're good to go!

I'm having my 1st on Monday. Everyone told my about the "Prep" which did not sound that bad until I picked up my kit. What my friends failed to tell me is your drink the stuff TWICE. Mine is Monday at 8:30am, so on Sunday its clear liquids, at 4pm I start drinking the first 1 liter bottle..........and then go sit. Then 6 hours prior to the colonoscopy I drink the second batch. Which means my day will start at 2:30am

Ohhh yes...more than one way to worship the porcelain throne.....

As far as Sprockets...you should be fine the next day, but you might be a little hungry! Even that old bunker may be looking a little like sushi to ya..

You'll probably be hungry, bring subs and snacks.

A co worker said he hurt some after polyp removal ...His family has a history of polyps...maybe he had several removed or he was having sympathy pains.....;?

That's just what he told everyone around the water cooler, so he could miss work and go fishing.

For me, prep is the worst part. 3 polyps removed, felt fine that afternoon. You will be famished, stock the fridge.

Don't you just hate it when they use the same tube for both.

Couldn't resist.
I have it done every 5-6 years and no ill efects the day after.

And they do the throat second.
They just told you it was severe acid reflux.

Seriously guys, don't delay getting this done.
It is one of the easiest ways to catch possible problems early and it could save your life.
If not for you, do it for your family.
