Getting a colonoscopy on Wednesday...

Conventional wisdon is 50, but if you have stomach issues, 40 is probably a good idea. Severe stomach issues, maybe even sooner.

The newer drugs are the best..... before they came along it was hell.

The best thing I can equate it to (mind you, this is back in the day when they didn't put you under all the way) is inserting a lubricated Babe Ruth model Louisville Slugger when there's no way in hell you think it'll fit....

I'm performing my first colonoscopy this Wednesday at 11am. Unfortunately for my patient, I'm more nervous than he is and will not have a steady hand.

You are going to find that Crayon you ate in 3rd grade.

And hey, your colon will be cleaner than it's ever been.

(at least until next week, when you'll have polluted it again) :lol:

On a related note, if for some reason they would have to remove a part of your large intestine, does that mean you have a semicolon? :unsure:

I have a history of colon cancer in my family so I'll be getting my first one this year at age 25 and every five years (I believe) from here on out. Sucks.

Don't have a history, but do have IBS and my last time out, they found four polyps, two they considered pre-cancerous.

Next one's scheduled in a year or two.
