Yesterday afternoon I had to go and have my Colonoscopy, so I had planned to do some blogging in the morning but that wasn't to be the case as I woke up with a really bad headache and found it too hard to concertraite on much. I did manage to read a comment on a few blogs but I just found it to hard.
So Kathy-Lee drove me over to the hospitial I was there early but as I told the nurse when she commented about me being early that I would rather be early and have to wait then running late. Thankfully since I was early the nurse let me lay on my bed and I closed my eyes and she came and put a folded up pillow case over my eyes which was great, the next thing I knew I was being wheeled into the procedure room. They left the pillow case over my eyes till I was sedated.
Now when you have something like this done they put a cannula in your hand well it took 5 attemps to get on into me and it ended up being in my arm just below my tattoo, one of the reasons it was difficult to find a vein is because I had nothing to eat or drink since 7am. The nurse tried twice but had no luck so she left it for the doctor to do and it took him 3 attemps before he got it in.
After the procedure when I woke up I still had the headache and I was also feeling sick in the stomach like I was going to throw up and I was shaking , I was given a sandwich and apple juice and 2 headache tablets but it didn't help. I was in so much pain I just wanted to come home and go back to bed. Kathy-Lee came and picked me up and of course she had Sydney-May with her, when I stood up to leave I nearly passed out so the nurse decided to get a wheel chair and take me down to Kathy's car as she didn't think I would be able to walk that far.
When I got home I got changed and went straight to bed and didn't wake till 7.50pm and then I got up took my night time tablets and packed the dishwasher and put it on the I was back in bed 5 minutes later and didn't wake again till 7am. Today I am feeling much better which is good as today is Friday and I had to go and do my weekly shopping.
