What we have here is a failure to communicate

So CSP took me to my appointment today for my upper gi endoscopy.  They took my vitals and asked the standard questions like when was the last time I ate or drank.  So I answered them.  And that’s when the trouble started.  When they scheduled my procedure the girl told me no eating within 3 hours of the thing but I could drink up to the start time.  Apparently that was wrong.  Apparently she was supposed to tell me no eating within 6 hours and no drinking within 2.  So now I have to go back Wednesday for this whole thing and my whole day was screwed up.  Bleh!

Why am I having this done?  Well, I’d really rather not get into that on the internets right now.  But we’re having some medical issues in my family.  My sister and I are both chronically anemic and tests are being done.  Once I have some answers then I’ll share.  Thank you for your concern!

  1. bummer that you didn’t get to get that test over with today. I’m not supposed to eat after midnight and no drinking anything either…but mine’s schedule for 10:00 a.m. I hope it goes well for you!


  2. Oh, I’m sorry. That is a bummer. Once time I was supposed to have surgery and I took a week off at work and got all prepared for it only to get there and find out the doctor had overlooked something major in my medical history and it needed to be an inpatient procedure and I would have to spend the night and they couldn’t do that at the outpatient surgery center so I had to reschedule. I was in my gown, in the bed, with the I.V. already inserted. I had to go home and come back four days later. Boy, was I mad!
