Follow-up with my GI . . .

I saw my GI this week and it was awkward, which I expected after the stern message I sent a few weeks ago. It was like seeing your ex or being in a room with someone you had a big fight with. It was awkward lol . . . I wasn’t happy to see him, and he seemed a little timid, very unusual for him. I laugh now, but was highly annoyed in the moment. We discussed again my symptoms and how he believes Humira will be my saving grace. Since I started Humira a month ago, it’s too early to tell if it’s working but to check my progress he would like to schedule a Flex Sigmoidoscopy. I believe it’s the same procedure I had in the hospital this past April, not a full colonoscopy but enough to get up in there! lol I have it scheduled for December 10th and I will not be sedated, should be interesting.  I plan to work from home that day, so as long as I can make it home safely. . . In the hospital I was given an enema an hour prior to the procedure. It was the most horrible experience of my life!! Looking at the prep for this procedure, it states “one to three hours before appointment, take one fleet enema” . . . . umm  who’s going to do that?!?!?  Once again I left with more questions than answers, looking for a 2nd opinion . . . .
