Unpleasant medical tests
Wednesday, October 07, 2020
I got a phone call today telling me that my doctor had ordered a colonoscopy and endoscopy for me, and did I want to schedule it? I said, "Oh? That's news to me." She said, "Your doctor didn't tell you about it?" And I said, "No, she didn't say a word."
"Well then," she said, "I guess you're probably not ready to schedule it." Well no, I wasn't. Admittedly, although I was completely truthful that the doctor hadn't said a word about it, I wasn't in the least surprised. Of course she would want me to have the most unpleasant of all tests. Naturally, an ultrasound wouldn't do the job, or a sleep study, or anything more or less pain free. Nope.
Not looking forward to discussing this with her, either. :-(
