I've had blood work, physical exam with pap, mammogram and a colonoscopy in the past two weeks. Whew! We are now established with a new doctor here. This was my first colonoscopy today, I was eleven years overdue. I worked in the medical field before retiring and I've been impressed with the medical care here.

Our new doctor does accept Medicare patients when DH retires. I have a friend that retired and her gynecologist jettisoned her when she went on Medicare. Telling new patients that Medicare isn't accepted is one thing, but doing that to an established patient seems cold-hearted.

All exams have been negative other than the mammo report which isn't back yet and cholesterol for both of us is high. Our doctor agreed to give us the summer to get it down with diet and exercise and if our blood test doesn't come back lower in the fall, medication will be discussed. Right now neither of us are on any meds and we'd like to keep it that way.

I wasn't dreading the procedure as much as the prep and the prep wasn't bad. They advised me to start eating lighter starting on Wednesday. Liquid diet the day before and drinking the prep and a gallon of water later in the day and night kept me from getting hungry.

I am so glad you folks are here. Had a hard time getting in because I lost my password but, here I am. Really hurt tonight. Fell on the sidewalk, broke my glasses and got a deep gash in my forehead, Finally did quit bleeding but have to call the eye doc in the morning and get in asap. I just hope it was a one-time thing and I don't have to start using a walker when I'm outside.

The pain woke me up so here I am

Oh Meo. I feel for you. I tripped on a computer cord at home once and fell flat on my face. My glasses were broken too. And I know about pain and sleeping. Had my first PT session yesterday, then did some of the exercises before bedtime and then...... NO SLEEP ! Tossed and turned. Finally at 2 AM I took two Advil Pms and an hour later a half glass of wine. Yikes. Am surprised I even woke up today.

Hope you are feeling better and get some rest.
