Better than if you are on your back and they start laughing when they remove the blanket. :D
Wouldn't be the first time!

The four times in the last year that I've had a heart cath. Even though they went in through my neck, the first thing they do is to flip off the blanket and shave my groin. Both sides! Next they slap a narrow led shield over my boys. I dare you to not be embarrassed ;), especially when the nurses are hot. Unfortunately, the room is kept at sub-arctic temperatures.




Been there. Got the T-shirt. The plugging of the femoral artery was the worst part. And yes the nurses were HOT!! Room was cold. :oops:

congrats on the good report..... its all behind you now! :)

with my new and improved healthcare coverage the test has been changed somewhat for me....

They told me to lay on the floor with my legs in the air and set a candle by my posterior.
I am supposed to fart as hard as I can and observe the flame pattern. Anything other than a blue flame indicates problems and I should consult them for further testing. I have been having a problem seeing the flame so after repeated attempts I am looking for volunteers to video this from a different angle but so far there have been no takers. :surrender:

Three weeks ago sister in law just had half her colon removed. Last week she went to see the surgeon for a follow up appointment. I put her up to this.... She asked him "Am I going to get a wallet card to carry with me that shows I've had half my colon removed?" He took the bait & said "No, why do you ask?" She said "Well, I figured if I showed the card all my future colonoscopies would be half price". He laughed but informed her that wouldn't be the case!

Yup, she's doing very well. Dr says in two weeks she'll be 100%, no restrictions.

Semi-colon! Ha! Gotta be a joke in there someplace. :)

My colonoscopy was more routine. When being prepped I said no drugs as it's smooth muscle and should not hurt. I was told that sometimes the distention from blowing air up there can hurt I replied no matter, I'm used to pain, I own a horse farm. So I watched the pictures on their shiny new Olympus camera and we talked about rental properties in the Middletown area. WOW, after all the chit I put down there it was still like a babies bottom - amazing. ... and no, I did not feel a thing. I know, more information than you needed - right?

Let me first say that all three of my colonoscopies have been painless. That being said.... they usually give you "conscious sedation", and that's what I got the first time. You might remember little bits but they can put you deeper if need be. In reality, you are awake most of the time, but it's quite amnesiac and you just don't remember. Well, come time for my second one and the Dr's office told me I'd be getting total anesthesia. I asked why. It seems during my first one I flopped around like a fish on the floor & was in a lot of pain. I don't recall a thing. So.... just as my second procedure was starting we talked about why I was getting full anesthesia. I told the Dr "I want you to know that I don't remember a thing from last time". He said "Neither do I" LOL I suppose....why would he.... I was just another *censored* to him. :)
