Hi, Nanette. This is Cedars hospital calling to see how you're feeling after your colonoscopy on Friday.
Oh! Well, I was fine, but as soon as I left the office, my nose started running. I think it was an allergic reaction to the oxygen tube they used, well, not the tube itself but the actual oxygen because I was laying on my left side and that's the nostril that was bothering when I left the office, and it was so bad ALL DAY, and on Saturday, which was the night we were going to celebrate my birthday so I just wanted to feel better. I decided to call the on-call general practioner, and he told me what OTC meds I could take that would be OK with my Zyrtec and Flonase -- those meds weren't helping at all, but the OTC stuff kicked in and it got better. It was so bizarre, but I knew I wasn't alone 'cuz I looked online and found a bunch of folks who'd had the same issues from the oxygen after their colonoscopies, and it was strange because this didn't happen when I got my first colonscopy six years ago.
But I'm OK now!
OK, great! Hope you had a great birthday!
