I hate when you have to go in fasting!

So after my trip to the doc last week he sent me for x-rays and blood work the blood work was good, the x-ray showed a loop of bowel is inflamed so today I got to go for an "upper endoscopy" I got to go in fasting SIGH! it was scheduled at 12:15 that was bad enough but then of course everything was late so by the time I got back for my 15 minute procedure and out and was able to eat it was 3 yes 3 PM grumble grumble!

Just a visual for you on the whole "Upper Endoscopy". Good news, no ulcers or anything nasty in my stomach.

Tomorrow the fun continues with an upper bowel x-ray with contrast, Yup I get to fast AGAIN, then drink barium (YUM) then I get to be put on a tilt table and a series of x-rays will show if the reason for the inflammation in the loop of bowel if because of a blockage. If not then we get to wait until I have another attack at which time I am no longer allowed to just take pain meds and tough it out I am sworn to go to the ER.
Oh found a picture of the tilt table, almost as fun as the state fair NOT!!!

HUGS and Love to all,

You get to have all the fun... I'm severely jealous of you. NOT! Anyway, I hope everything turns out okay and that whatever is causing the issue can be solved with some fabric therapy and Bottle Caps!!!

Hope you are feeling better! That tilt table looks scary all by itself. Yikes!
