It's "Top'n'Tail" Time!


Every 2 years-or-so, I have a medical procedure that checks my insides - one of the joys of having Ulcerative Colitis

This Friday sees me in our local hospital, for day surgery, for a colonoscopy and gastroscopy - checking to see that nothing 'nasty' is sitting in there. It involves a general anaesthetic, which I've always come out of quite well of, in the past.

The "preparation" always works effectively for me... the day before, having to drink 3 litres of a solution that [cough] flushes your insides out! Plus, from today (Wednesday), I'm only drinking water. I'll be knackered (and hungry!) by Friday night, I'm sure! hahahahaaa.

Normally this whole process doesn't concern me, but this time I admit I feel a little uneasy... I've no reason to be, but I'm just well-and-truly over hospitals and doctors and tests and all that, to be honest.

This'll be the first time I'll have this procedure since my MS diagnosis in January... I know that's not an issue, but it's sitting in the back of my mind - not that my MS will affect anything to do with Friday, of course. It's just another 'thing' to have to think about... ahhh! The joys of getting older, huh? They never told me about this in the "Life Brochure"! [grins]

My biggest regret is that I've had to cancel my weekly radio program for this Friday night as a result - dagnammit! If that's the worst thing, then life is good! Yes!

"She'll be right, mate!"
