I’m going to have to do another pill cam.
I’m not entirely sure how I feel about this GI, though. :/ I miss my old one so much. This one… eh, she didn’t really talk to me or seem concerned about anything. Honestly, nobody asked about my symptoms or how I’ve been feeling lately. Not. Once.
Isn’t that kind of important? If for no other reason than to make me feel like you’re listening to me?
I did, however, get some medicine that is supposed to stop the stomach pains. So excited.
I had Bentyl before, but that only comes in pill or liquid form. Neither of those really work well for me. This one is a dissolvable tablet and is supposedly minty-tasting. I forget what it’s called…
I hope it works!!
Incredibly happy right now!
I have these four pills I have to take as a part of my colonoscopy prep.
Problem: I can’t swallow pills. No matter how hard I try, what methods I use, and how much I want to, it just doesn’t go down. I have tried everything (because chewing up Prednisone is the worst). If a genie showed up and granted me three wishes, my first one would be to swallow pills. Seriously.
Usually I would just chew them up and make faces and then move on - but the box says don’t chew them, may cause stomach discomfort, cramps, etc. I do not need any of that nonsense.
So, I found a method. And I know I’m not supposed to eat anything today, but it was either this or not take the pills - I dropped them inside a raspberry and swallowed that.
I’m baffled. I don’t understand 1) why I can swallow a raspberry stuffed full of pills and not a single, tiny little pill, or 2) why I never tried this before.
Raspberries are my favorite thing ever. Ever. My grandmother (we lived next door to her until I was about ten, at which point I moved in with her) had raspberry bushes when I was young. So I had an unlimited supply of raspberries to feast upon whenever I wanted (for years, what wasn’t eaten immediately, she picked and froze, so there was always a lot of them around). Then, when she started getting sick more frequently, and tired, she stopped gardening as much and the raspberry bushes stopped growing. Alas, my love was lost. Now, I’m practically a slave to raspberries. I love them so much. So why have I never tried this before?!
My love for raspberries has conquered my inability to swallow pills.
My day has been made.
