Wyy don't we form a mini club and cheer each other on to countdown date?  Even hour by hour as it gets close to the end.

I am having a flex sig next Monday. I have been bawling daily since making the appt last week. I would LOVE a support group for scary medical tests.

I don 't have a test, but I find out the results of one. I had a mammogram a week ago and I get the results Monday. Yikes!

Yikes is right.  I'm trying hard to NOT think of "it" (colonoscopy 7 AM Monday) but, as  with all negative thoughts, the more you don't want to entertain it - the more it sneaks into your consciousness.

3:19 PM here. 

We are going out for a nice dinner - early - 6PM - my last decent meal til Monday afternoon.  Gotta start with the pill laxatives tonight - then the big kahuna begins tomorrow with clear liquids only and the beginning of drinking the STUFF!!  Yuck.

Still trying the "grateful" things - glad I have insurance, good doc, no bad symptoms, etc.

How are you guys surviving hour to hour?

Every once in a while I get a panicky feeling and then it subsides.  I have other issues too, so I guess I think about them as well.  I am a bit of a nervous wreck right now.

Good luck on Monday; I am sure everything will be fine.

Like greend I don't have a test on Monday, but I will be finding out the results from the pelvic U/S I had on Friday. The radiologist already said I have polyps and what looks like endometriosis and will need lap surgery - fun fun. I'll have to wait to hear from my OB to know for sure.

I still have over a week until my scope so I feel like my anxiety is building and building by the day
May I ask why you are having a colonoscopy? Have tou ever had rectal bleeding? That's why I am having the sigmoidoscopy.

Well, I suffered through the Ducalex laxative tablets I took before bedtime.
 Woke up at 4AM with nasty cramps.  Then waves(spasms) for next several hours.  Finally, was able to sleep about 8 AM til 11.  Got to stay on clear liquids all day.  Dear husband is going to wait  on me all day and go out for non-red Popsicles and broth.

 I start the heavy duty stuff at 5 PM then I will be up and down all night.

Won't have to worry about setting the alarm for 4:30 AM to be outta here by 5:30

Lindsay, I've had lots of rectal bleeding- even filling up the toilet bowl. That's when I found out I have ulcerative colitis  which I've had for 12 years - mostly in remission.
16 hours to go ....

11 hours to go.  Almost throwing up from the vileGatorade and Mucilage combination.  Would kill for a potato chip or cracker.  Have had this test before but it's never been this bad.

MRI of cervical spine and brain on Monday. I'm hoping to god it shows nerve impingement issues in my spinal cord so I can stop worrying about something worse than a simple surgery or physical therapy.

Best wishes to all.
