Thank you Jeremy, it is indeed. This afternoon amongst the Bougainvillea was a Swallowtail in bright blue and I didnít have my camera with me. There is always tomorrow.

As things go, I'm well ahead of you as this last one, deep throat was my third ... each one a different orifice. I checked, it was an Olympus camera.
How are you Wally?

Today it was Colonoscopy under sedation and I didn’t feel a thing. I declined photos of the sights. Believe or not, I am a bit of a wuss when viewing my insides. All that was found was haemorrhoids, much relief! I am back home this evening. I can get back on with life and Photography. Still no results from the stomach ulcer biopsy. The Gastroenterologist doesn’t think there is a malignancy and he doesn’t think the ulcer is caused by the H. Pylori infection, because of its location.

In follow up, I wanted to bring closure. Thank you all for your concerns and especially a big thanks goes to the witty reprobates who cheered me up

Glad to know things are looking good for you, Phil.

Having had endoscopy's and colonoscopy's I know what you've gone through with regards to that end of things (pun intended) :-) Following my last colonoscopy, a couple of days later I was rushed back in to hospital with terrible pains, They thought they might have punctured the colon but tests and scans showed otherwise and it was believed that I had had a very bad reaction to the procedure. I was told that any future looky looky's would be done by using scan technology to keep invasive techniques to a minimum.

Cheers and thanks for the update.

I thought you were going to say they had left the camera in there!

Re: Has anyone had a stomach ulcer?

It's not the camera that's the bother its the fliping tripod!

After a similar experience with difficulties due to a stricture in my bowel I was also advised no more scopes up, and have since had the CT alternative much more pleasant and they seemed to get just as much information. I was found to have a co-reactal fissure and am awaiting a follow up for treatment.

Glad all went well and continues that way.

PS if you are going for a scope up ask for citrafleet it is not as bad and only a couple of glasses rather than litres of the other stuff.

Re: Has anyone had a stomach ulcer?

Many years ago (actually 12 years ago) there was this thread in a cycling forum on the adventures of a seriall picolax user.

See

https://singletrackworld.com/2009/02...hread-returns/

People have beeen advised not to read it in offices or while drinking liquids.

Enjoy

Thanks for that link, Derek.

Very, very funny. I would advise everybody to read blue-tone's escapades. You can skip everybody else's contributions, just scroll to the next blue-tone post, and the next, and the next until the end. In my opinion he's nailed it to perfection.

Thanks, I'll (try to) remember that, certainly sounds much better than 'tother stuff.

I am sorry to hear about the fissure, a painful condition to have to put up with. Hopefully the treatment will bring a major improvement to your quality of life. Thanks for the 'heads up' on Citrafleet. They only use Picolax in Nairobi.

Thank you for that sir! By coincidence, this morning Keith, I was doubled up in agony on the bed and then on the loo. I remembered your account of rushing to the hospital post colonoscopy. I will try something else. Then I recalled my wife gave me home made Chick Pea and Pumpkin soup for supper last night - rich in fibre. It was the soup that did it. Things seemed to have settled down with gripe water and the last of the Picolax going through
