|I'm having a colonoscopy in two days, and I'm about to start the preperation procedure in 2 hours and 12 minutes. >_< I'm 15, and I'm so freaking out almost. I've never stepped into a hospital for anything medical, I've never had IVs, I can't imagine an "artificial sleep." I don't wanna drink the stuff they gave me. And on top of that, I get to imagine a tube going down my mouth! And then up my butt! I don't like the thoughts about this. >_< I hope this finishes everything and I don't have to go back. =[ I've been bleeding for over a year now, but I didn't tell my mom until about 11 months. (I think) I'm so scared about being embarassed and what people will think. =[
If a tear is found in your colon, how do they fix it? Apparently if they find one, they would bring a surgeon in. Would they have to cut me open, or would they use the intruments through the tube?
