The phone machine was useful for once.

A couple of hours ago, while I was almost fainting, there was a phone call made by a machine. But this time it did not offer me a new phone plan. It came from the doctors office and told me everything I needed to know before I went for my colonospopy. The voice, machine like, gave all the answers. I can eat something, not much, until tonight. From then on, it is only liquids until the last glass of laxitive, at 6 AM. Then I will not be able to either eat or drink anything. I wanted to thank her, but how do you thank a machine?

When you get to the doctor's office for the procedure, you can let them know how much you appreciate the informative call.

Yes it is nice when a voice mail answers all your questions and yes you tell them that it was helpful.

@mypointsju I didn´t know whether I was supposed to eat something or not. And I cannot be with no food at all for a whole day.

Courage, it will soon be over! I had 4 of them in my life already, so I know what you are going through.

This is not my first colonoscopy, but I think that the older I get, the less I like them.

I guess you thank it by doing just what it said to do. I hope all goes well.

I was so happy that I would be able to eat something.

Well, that answering machine did come in handy!!! Well, just thank a staff person if you are able, after the procedure.

I will! I was very hungry until the machine told me that it wasn´t that long.

Good luck with that! I have heard the prep is worse than the procedure. I hope all goes well and you get a clean bill of health! :)

I know it is. The procedure comes with anesthesia. After that, I have been told that I say all sort of inconvenient things but as I don´t remember, I don´t care
