My bronch was moved ahead to today. Docs want to make sure there's nothing wonkified going on in my new chunkers; like no ugly rejection monster lurking in my lung shadows...stuff like that.
We landed at the hospital a bit early so we went upstairs to visit Carman. Turns out he was scheduled for a bronch today too.
|The monkey takes the fear away|
If you're wondering who was scheduled first...
He was being wheeled into the prep room as I was being wheeled to the
procedure room and you can bet your a$% I reminded him that I won.
As you can tell, there's obviously no competition between us.
A bronchoscopy involves an IV being jammed in the body, gargling with a horrid freezing solution (which I avoid as it makes me hurl), an aerosol with the freezing solution, an atrocious freezing spray and some beautiful sedation. And that's just the prep work.
To get the party started a scope is shoved down my throat, the doc gawks around at the goods and a biopsy is done.
|Something like this I'm sure|
It's all very glamorous.
Cons: disgusting freezing spray
Pros: sexy sedation
Sedation is a beautiful thing. Especially when you are dead tired and just want a freaking nap before a shopping trip. I say bring it on and knock me the heck out.
Results will be in by Monday.
