Thanks for the vibes on Jerrys colonoscopy!

He made it through the prep better than I was expecting and his procedure is over! They didn't find anything and all is well. Only thing is, he said although they gave him some drugs, he was wide awake and chatting with them through the whole thing.......we were both under the impression that you were either knocked out or at least out of it...............
He said there was some discomfort/pressure, but nothing that was awful.

Thanks once again for the wonderful TCS vibes.........they're the best!

I'm so glad it all went allright!!

I believe it's usual to be awake through the procedure. You should find out if he said anything funny, though, while he was under the influence of the meds. Pat had a minor procedure last year for which he was given drugs but not knocked out. The surgeon was still cracking up when he came to talk to me in the waiting room.

I'm glad he is doing good and it went well. I was also wide awake during the procedure. They just did like an epi to numb everything below the waist and all I felt was pressure. It wasn't bad.

Susie, I'm glad everything turned out good... I was thinking of you yesterday, wondering if you were a bundle of nerves waiting there in the hospital??? As I'm sure you were! Hopefully Jerry won't have to go through that again for quite sometime.....
