This is my fourth colonoscopy. Previously:
- Colonoscopy with Klean-Prep, February 2010 (11 years ago)
- Colonoscopy with Pico-Salax, April 2012 (9 years ago)
- Colonoscopy with Purg-Odan (Pico-Salax), July 2017 (4 years ago)
I’m a 31 year old woman, and I live in southern Ontario, Canada. In December 2009, I went to the hospital with a perforated bowel. The doctors performed a bowel resection, and I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. I haven’t been on any medication since 2016, and my Crohn’s seems to be in remission, so this colonoscopy is just a routine checkup.
I expect this colonoscopy will be a little different than my previous ones, since we’re currently in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. I’m not worried about the actual procedure or the prep, since I’ve done that all before, but I am worried about possibly catching COVID at the hospital.
