I had a colonoscopy on Thursday. The prep was bad enough, and I kept getting cold. The actual procedure seemed to go well. I still don’t have pathology results, but that should be late next week.
However, the recovery from the procedure has been harder than I remember from previous experiences. I wish they had told me to stop taking my baby aspirin.
Getting into autophagy was horrible! I ended up with a case of the KETO-flu. I was in ketosis when I got there for the procedure. The fast made sure of that — it was clear liquids of any kind, and I used broth and water with electrolytes. I avoided juice and sodas, which are high in sugars and carbs. I ate meat after the procedure and again on Friday. By Friday night, I was feeling really rough and I gave in to carbs.
Totally blew it! But passing blood like I’ve been and feeling so horrible, I couldn’t take it.
I’ll try again after I heal up inside.
