Quoting Shannonsfirst:" And medication the doctor can give him for anxiety? "
Quoting momma snell:" Is he a christian? I know that for my husband, I'd perhaps start to work on memorizing certain scriptures...I ... [snip!] ... know it would be a huge comfort to him. But, I realize that if you guys aren't christians, that would just seem silly. "
Quoting Penises 3:Vaginas 1:" I don't know if they would give him medicine for anxiety just over these tests. When they are done ... [snip!] ... he will completely placed under, and I'm assuming they might push valium before they do it to relax him. I can ask tomorrow. "
Quoting Penises 3:Vaginas 1:" He's nondenominational, he believes in God, so maybe that might help ease him a little bit. Thanks."
Quoting Shannonsfirst:" Alot of us cancer parents get scripts just for scan times (kids get them every 3, 4 or 6 months). Ask...and see. good luck! maybe less talk about it till its time will help "
Quoting MommyDK:" is he worried about the tests? or possibly the results?? I have had them both done 2x and the worst part ... [snip!] ... part of it is the prep.. the stuff you have to drink for the colonoscopy .. the actual procedure I don't remember a thing!"
Quoting momma snell:" You're welcome. I hope it all goes smoothly. It's hard to see them like that."
Quoting Penises 3:Vaginas 1:" That's what I tried to tell him. My dad had one done and I remember him having to drink like a gallon ... [snip!] ... And I think it's a little bit of both. I think he'd rather live ignorant to what he has them find out the severity of it. KWIM?"
Quoting MommyDK:" Yes its this horrible lemon/lime drink that I think tastes like salt water.. I could have clear liquids ... [snip!] ... better take care of myself.. I guess just keep reassuring him that it will be ok. I hope everything turns out ok for you guys"
