CSEMARTIN Posted January 20, 2008 Share Posted January 20, 2008 I just diagnosed another person with colon cancer. If you're 50 or older, do yourself a favor and go get screened. It's not that big of a deal. It's a lot easier to take out a polyp than to treat metastatic colon cancer. For some reason, the stories of what it used to be like in the old days are still lingering. The bowel preps are better. You don't have to drink a gallon of crap anymore. If your kidneys are working ok, you drink two small bottles of fluid, meet your doctor the next morning for happy hour, do some time travel, wake up in recovery, go home, eat a nice meal and take a nap the rest of the day. You might say weird things after the nurse gives you the drugs, but nobody will find out. If you start playing with yourself during the procedure, it doesn't mean you're gay. (I'm just kidding, no one has ever done that). Just go get screened! Send me a PM and I'll tell you exactly what to expect. If you've had a colonoscopy, please feel free to post your experience here.
