So due to my colonoscopy prep I could only have a liquid and popsicle diet all day as well as 4 mega-industrial laxatives spread thru the day to clear out my,well, colon, and which also gave me the major shits, as in diarrhrea, and all I had to eat all day was a banana and orange popsicles, a cream soda freezie, cup of soup, pop, and orange and cherry Gator Aid. They said nothing with any red or purple dyes(as it might be mistaken under the scope as blood) but I found a cherry one without any dye; it was white! The laxative was absolutely vile,too; imagine a mixture of the most sour lemonade ever combined with water mixed with 10 cups of sugar! That’s what this disgusting connoction tasted like! Why can’t they make this thing in a pill form?
Let me tell you about my day….truly and utterly miserable day. I’m shitting and starving and bleeding….Aunt Flow decided to come, 3 days early,too, just in time for my procedure. That’s just great. It always seems to have a habit of always coming at the worst possible times. Actually, I’m bleeding twice, out of two holes….
This is what I feel like, a hippo splattering shit, marking his territory. My colon will just let out this huge loud reverberating groan and growl and then…boom!..shit just shoots out, sprays out, squirts out, sometimes I can’t even tell if I’m peeing or shitting….it just spews out all over and erupts like a volcano, and every half hour of so. I also notice increasingly, blood as well.Now there’s lots actually, and increasingly bright red in colour and maybe that’s why I fainted the other day then,too? Maybe I’m bleeding internally and my BP was low? I first noticed a strange color(this is all liquid, BTW), sort of a bronze colour, then later more copper and then reddy-brown, and when I wiped my ass it was definite bright red blood. I know it wasn’t from “Aunt Flow” either because that hole’s plugged up with a tampon. With my luck I’ll probably end up having the stupid thing right until I die,too!
Bleeding from the colon is never a good sign and is almost always an indication of colon cancer and by this time tomorrow, way before then,actually) I should know if I have cancer or not. Maybe it’s just irritated from the colonic and bleeding as it’s like an Olympic workout for my poor colon, but with all the other symptoms too( diarrhrea normally, weight loss and abdomenal pain) it really does make you wonder, plus it’s why it’s getting the colonoscopy in the first place, looking for cancer!
This was a Facebook status I posted earlier. It’s some pretty hard-core stuff too this purging laxative as it strips everything out of not only your colon but your body, incl. all your potassium, electrolytes, nutrients, etc. leaving you dehydrated (so I have to keep drinking lots of fluids) and can even put people at risk for seizures, heart-attacks, and strokes! Holy shit! Having the cup of soup it was chicken noodle only I just scooped the noodles out as I could only have the broth and it was so sad; I just love the noodles, it’s my fave. part and I just felt to badly, so guilty scooping them out and throwing them out like that, like I almost had to go to Confession, but somehow despite my careful filtering a microscopic morsel of chicken got thru and as I tasted it it was glorious, like a blessing sent from God, and at that moment I knew how the Israelites must have felt finding manna in the desert; I was almost glowing inside and it was magnificent.
