Take it off your chest...

I have a doctor's appointment that I've waited for for about half a year. Despite it being a really shitty kind of appointment that needs a really awful preparation (it's a colonoscopy), I couldn't wait to finally do it because I finally need a diagnosis for whatever illness I have that's currently making my life miserable. So, the doctor told me what I have to do beforehand and I did that, all fine. Today's the day, and out of boredom (and nervousness, to be honest) I looked the procedure up on the internet. And there was a lot stuff written there, that I should have done, that my doctor either didn't tell me or that I forgot again - like not being allowed to eat certain food (which I did eat) or not being allowed to drink anything after swallowing the laxative (which I also didn't know) and that if you do that wrongly, the colonoscopy can't be done. Well, I am done now. I didn't eat all day, drank laxatives, waited for half a year for this, didn't go to work (and make my co-workers hate me for it) and now this apparently can't be done because the doctor (I think) forgot to tell me this...

  • If your doctor didn't mention it, don't worry about it. Even the same procedure can be done different ways or with different medications. Try not to worry about it. And as for your coworkers: If they hate you for going to the doctor, fuck them. They're nothing but a bunch of cocksuckers.

  • Talk to your doctor about it, he knows better what is necessary before a procedure which he probably does every day
