Had EGD and Colonoscopy today
« on: July 01, 2014, 02:39:03 AM »
I didn't post my concerns before the testing as I didn't want to instill panic if things didn't go well.  I had been experiencing increased painless bleeding from my bowels and problems with food getting stuck mid chest as I swallowed.

Had an EGD and colonoscopy today.  They used propofol with me because I am in recovery and wanted to stay away from versed and fentanyl.  I fell asleep and then woke up...very easy...almost no hang over.  Even the prep wasn't that bad.  If you are scared of having either of these procedures, don't be.

I got my answers...grade II internal hemorrhoids...no polyps.  Esophageal spasms but no Barretts.  Nothing bad.  It's about as good of news as I could have gotten.  I'm very thankful and thought I would share.

MOST anxiety occurs on a subconscious level.  JUST because you don't feel consciously anxious or had a day or two of calm doesn't mean your mind & body are relaxed.  It can take months of reduced anxiety before a body goes back to a more non-reactive state

Good for you shawn glad everything went well . You shouldn't feel that you would instill panic. You've helped so many ppl here that if you had concerns we would have helped. I had the same procedure last year it is a breeze with propofol. Once again awesome news.

Thanks everyone.  That's one less thing to think about.  Considering I rarely had health anxiety until I turned 40, this has been a rough year for it.  I thought a mid life crisis was supposed to look like me getting a new sports car, and working out...oh yeah did those things too...lol.
