... ecking in to see what your Dr. had to say about the test results. I noted that you live in a City with excellend health care.

I think you should give it 24 hrs and if still in pain consult your Dr. I'm sure a certain amount of discomfort is normal after such a procedure, take some painkillers and see how things go. Good Luck, Solofelix. (4 replies)

... Sudo, Honestly, the worst part is the anticipation. The procedure itself is quick and you wont remember a thing. Routine screening is the best thing you can do to protect yourself from any serious problems. When you are done, you will get a great peace of mind, knowing you are all clear. If they should remove any polyps, it is good, because you will never let one get... (5 replies)
