Colonoscopy

Posted , 2 users are following.

I also had hoover up butt, as I called it, because thats what I thought it might feel like, [not that Ive had that!!}...........Had the same prep, as 64 year old male. Well I'm 63 year old woman, but my movi-prep DIDN'T work, although I followed letter to the "T"... and when did movi-prep work..........As soon as hose was put in, then my butt proceded to cover the nurse, the person doing it, and as I was told later, most of the floor. Was asked are you sure you read instructions??, of course I did. I had soooo much pain in gut, after taking movi-prep, that I had to phone up NHS 24. was I allowed to talk to a doctor, NO!!!!!, I as put on to a chemist, which was of NO USE, I wont be calling them anytime soon, even if I'm playing football with my head, you see, I've got Mental Health Issue, and as soon as NHS24 heard this, thought I must be an out of my mind. All I got was, you must have miss-read the instructions, as this always works. By this time, with tears pouring down my face, I felt like an out of this world IDIOT. I as asked if I wanted to talk to their trained m.h. specialist.....Didn't know they prescribed painkillers. . I had 6 Biopsis taken, and also have Diverticulitis, which has NOT improved through diet change. Also my husband of 33,1/3 years marriage, died of Cancer secondary infection in the brain. I have lost 7 stone through not, eating, not wantig to eat, wantig to put ALL meds into a bowl, and well you know, {but I didnt!!!}, as I'm here typing this for all of you. I will NEVER go for another Colonoscopy as long as I live. I dont care whats living up there, and I would rather take a dose of Andrews Liver Salts, which would probably have worked better than all the movi prep in the world. Thank You for alowing me to write this. Happy Hunting!!!!!!

    hi, i can relate to your experience with movieprep except when i took it after 3 hours it started working, by working i mean constant flow and severe pain in abdomen on my knees in the bathroom i was almost going to phone for an ambulance. but i swore i would NEVER take that poison again. and this all happened after just half the dose i was to take. anyhow fast forward a few weeks and my consultant told me i had to have the colonoscopy and to try again. i said no way, so now he has mebooked in for some sort of an enema in a few months time which i know nothing about. i tend to agree with you that maybe whats up there just leave it be and get on with life. im 66 next month and could do without all that poking and prodding . best of luck to yourself whatever you decide.
