Colonoscopy time for me
In my efforts to be a healthy senior, I have finally scheduled a routine colonoscopy. I had put it off for years because of the prep, but now that a prep product that has been available in Canada for years is now available in the US, I'm going forward.
I have been doing lots of reading on making the prep easy, and there are suggestions to go on a low residue diet for the days leading up to the prep - the theory being that the less stuff in your body, the less the prep has to remove, and cramping is reduced.
But wouldn't you know it, the healthy diet that is helping me lose weight is the stuff you shouldn't eat on a low residue diet. On the other hand, a few days of guilt-free donuts sounds attractive. And waffles for breakfast!
I've been the driver/waiter a couple of times for other people, so I know the system, and I don't mind anesthesia, so the procedure doesn't overly concern me. But the prep - ugh.
