Someday I’ll hit the jackpot and have a whole week without having to go to the doctor or have unexpected procedures or scans. This isn’t that week.
I’ve been having what I politely call “stomach Issues” for a little over a month now. I was taken off treatments last week and put back on steroids until I (hopefully) get treatments again next week. They didn’t do the trick, though, hence last Friday’s CT scan and thankfully lack of whammies for being hospitalized.
The CT was clear but even on steroids my stomach’s not much better. I’ve lost a little over 10 pounds in the last three weeks, and we have to figure out why. So this week I get to have a combination endoscopy and colonoscopy! The only way to improve a colonoscopy, I expect, is to combine it with invading both ends… and the only way to top THAT is to do the pre-procedure purge when your stomach has already been doing that same thing for over a month. Whee!
