They finally talked me into it...

A few prayers and words of encouragement might help. I go in July 5th to have a TV camera shoved up my arse. I told them that they probably better knock me out first, or I would probably knock out the doctor. This does not sound like my idea of fun........Robin

    If it is a colonoscopy and not a sigmoidoscopy they will anyway.

    The sig one lets you watch the fun.

    The worst part is the prep. You have to be cleaned out before the upthebuttascopetomy. Lots of laxatives and other pleasantries!! The stuff I had to take is called "fleet", whoever named it has a sense of humor. Be home and close to the bathroom when you take it. And you will probably be knocked out. That's the best part!!

    If you're talking about a colonoscopy, it's not that bad - just the fasting and crapping before you go in, and the waiting around. The procedure, itself, is nothing.

    Yeah, I'm due next year. Dad told me that when the time comes, bring a stack of books to the john, or maybe my iPad...

    As bad as it may seem, I'm sure colon cancer is worse. Get it checked. A friend in the church got colon cancer and it took him way too soon.

    Besides, a hose up the rectum? That sounds like my idea of a PARTY!!!! :jester:

    Yeah, I know. I had to be the one to do it. :bang:

    ETA, I must say it wasn't as bad as Buffy's post, though.

    I guess I'm colonoscopy curious, that's all.

    They don't knock you out. More of a mild sedation it's not bad at all. The preparation is bad, a gallon of not very tasty liquid that you have to drink is the bad part.
    Just look at the flowers Lizzie, just look at the flowers.

    Pretty much.

    Im sure we could take up a collection and get you one. You would just have to do it sans anesthetic.
    Well, if he would come to the next shoot, I bet Jerry has a garden hose and maybe Woodsrunner could come up with some special pain killer.

    Maybe not in Cali, but in these parts they do. Knocked me out cold for two hours, and I was loopy as a loon for the rest of the afternoon. That was the best part.

    The prep sucks, but the procedure itself is nothing, and no after effects that I could tell.

    One of our superintendents kept putting off his "inspection". When he finally had it done he was stage three with 29 pollops and a large tumor. The resulting operation to remove 18" laid him up for several weeks. Stage three means chemo cause it might be out in the body but hasn't shown up in other places. You don't want that. Early detection beats the alternative.

    I just had one done last Friday, they removed two polups. They did knock me out, used the same stuff that did Mikey J. in! Everyone is right; the prep is the worst part, the rest is nothing.

    If you're awake, here's some things you can say...


    1. "Take it easy, Doc. You're boldly going where no man has gone before!

    2. "Find Amelia Earhart yet?"

    3. "Can you hear me NOW?"

    4. "Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?"

    5. "You know, in Arkansas, we're now legally married."

    6. "Any sign of the trapped miners, Chief?"

    7. "You put your left hand in, you take your left hand out..."

    8. "Hey! Now I know how a Muppet feels!"

    9. "If your hand doesn't fit, you must quit!

    10. "Hey Doc, let me know if you find my dignity."

    11. "You used to be an executive at Enron, didn't you?"

    12. "God, now I know why I am not gay."

    13. "Could you write a note for my wife saying that my head is not up there?"

    This proceedure, along with the necessity for the proceedure, will very soon be a thing of the past in most cases. The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, has recently completed extensive research using an isolated tribe of Native Indians in far western Alaska as "test subjects" and now has a simple blood test to determine if the cancer exists or even potentially exists. As I understand the results of the research a simple blood test on anyone past puberty will even identify the potential of the individual being at risk of developing this cancer much later in life. Those who test positive of potentially contracting the cancer will be able to avoid it through simple lifestyle modifications of their diets.

    I was thinking about that-- not the way I would want to spend the 4th. Hawken's fireworks are going to be on the toilet. Good luck to you buddy!
