I had the colonoscopy yesterday, as requested by UFHealth before they could consider proton beam therapy for me. Preparation for the colonoscopy started with a couple of days of a low-fiber diet, then clear liquids only the day before the procedure. Late that day I began the colon cleansing process, which—mercifully—was divided between that day and the morning of the procedure. The procedure itself went well—at least that’s what they tell me, I was blissfully unaware of what was happening. No problems showed up in the results that should cause any problem with the therapy. Now I’m just waiting for approval of the proton beam therapy by my HMO.
