A brief bit of excitement. I had an uneventful colonscopy on Friday ... until yesterday when I developed some bleeding. Short story: I bled ~2 units before the GI docs clamped off the bleed. So I am back home today, not too much worse to wear, but a bit tired. It provided a few moments of reflection: 1) they don't warn you about the risks of a procedure for nothing and 2) don't take those warnings too lightly. Needless to say I am happy I contacted my MD and went to the ER. While I wasn't on the edge of death, the bleeding could have gone on indefinitely. The doctor's collegues met me at the ER and treated me within a couple of hours, I am thankful for their responsiveness and professionalism.
