Colcoscopy update

I have good news! Well good news for us anyway.
I rang the colcoscopy clinic to tell them that I was blind, and to ask them if its ok for my mom to go in with me. The lady I spoke to said yes, it was fine for my mom to come in to the room with me. She said we’d have to wear a mask, but they have masks and they will give us one upon arrival.
She said that I wouldnt be having a colcoscopy on my first visit, that I’d just be seeing the consultant and we’d be just having a chat. I’d probably be coming back again for treatment, and I may have to come back more than once.
I am delighted. I can breathe easy now. I am glad I won’t have to have any tests done, she said the consultant might do an internal exam, just to see where things are at. Thats not that bad, well not as bad as getting a camera shoved up inside you. At least an internal is over with in a matter of minutes.
And while it is still triggery, I think I can manage it.
I’m so glad I rang. My mind was in overdrive, so now, at least I feel less stressed and less worried.

  1. I’m so happy for you too. It’s still scary, b ut you’ll get a feel for the doctor, figuratively speaking, before they’ll do the actual colcoscopy.
