My BIL insisted on staying awake during his...colonoscopy. When the rest of us went he tried talking each of us to go at it wide awake. My SIL kept reminding him what a bad idea he thought it was right after she got him after his procedure.

Now days, they do the reconstructive surgery right there after the removal. They save the nipple and give you a size B cup. I can go for that. Its better than a D cup any day. Blouses fit much better.
The sad thing is, even without surgery I look like I've had breast removal surgery. Even now I have no need for a bra to hold The Girls up - I wear sport camisoles all the time! 62 and I never outgrew undershirts...

At least my application is pending now...
Same in New York.

It's getting better and the people I speak to are helpful.

Don't make yourself sick over it!

Oh no, I slept through my colonoscopy...and my heart caths. But using ultrasound it's fun to watch your heart doing the Mambo!

I advise everyone to sleep through a colonoscopy. I used to have a doctor who didn't put me out for it. Used to.

Shrek's IV infiltrated with all the "good" medicine going into the tissue of his arm instead of throughout his system. He was not only awake, but felt the entire procedure. Once I got him home the meds then started to take effect and he slept for 6 hours, with me hovering over him the entire time.

I wish I had caught it sooner, but I didn't see Shrek until he was in recovery and I then told the nurse there his IV had infiltrated...she hadn't even noticed. He has very vivid memories of the pain and procedure. Thank goodness they didn't find anything, I don't think I will be getting him back for another if he needs it.

Yes, it was! I just had an ultrasound where she checked my heart out thoroughly. It was kind of reassuring to see it doing it's "mambo".

Oh, jeez, that's awful. Poor Shrek.

That really stinks. It would be a guarantee that was my last colonoscopy. I sleep through mine and that's the way I like it.
