I've been having some belly pains on & off for a while and when I finally saw a G.I. doc (turned out to be a customer of the dealership I work for) he set me up for a colonoscopy (I was way overdue for one) and an upper G.I. endoscopy. I've been really scairt something bad was wrong even though the symptoms were mostly gone by the time the procedure date rolled around.
Anyway, after it was over he said the lower end was clean as a whistle with no polyps or unusual growths. YAY, what a relief! However, he said I do have a stomach ulcer but that it was easily treatable with medication. I can deal with that!
The Perkins "Tremendous Twelve" breakfast I had afterward and a day off from work capped it all off. (Not really, I got about half of it down and took the rest home.)
