I went for my follow up appointment today after having a colonoscopy and ending up with a barium enema. This is for anyone who has had GBS. I had a lot of loops in my colon, which is common in women, I guess. Also, women's colons are longer than men. My doctor got about half way through the colonoscopy (about level with my belly button) and he was concerned about my GBS area, which was just above it. If he perforated my colon he could do havoc with my surgical sight. So, he sent me (since I was already prepped) to have a barium enema for the rest of the way. Thankfully, my colon was healthy. I will have to have a barium enema from now on. I am telling you all this in case you have to have a colonoscopy, which is pretty routine after age 50. I am going every five years due to a pollup being found when I was 30. Nothing to look forward to, but a necessity in life to stay healthy.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
