I asked my guy, as many of you already know, as to if he found my keys my GF alleges I or my GF is alleged to have inserted.

My GF whisked me out of the room (or whatever it was) when I asked if bareback was the preferred technique.

I'm scheduled for an upper and lower procedure in a few weeks. I get the upper for long term reflux. Therefore the sedation is a bit more involved but they said 2 hours in and out. Looking forward to having this in the rear view mirror.

Today is my " prep " day this will be the 3rd time for me since I turned 50 . First one was clean second one they found one polyp . So to be safe having another before I turn 60 in January . Since I had prostate cancer 2 years ago that was another deciding factor . So I'm drinking black coffee and only broth and semi clear liquids for the day . At 6:00 start chugging the magic juice and prepare for liftoff !

Having done this twice it's no big deal just getting through the prep is the worst part . My procedure happens tomorrow at 7:30 AM so looking forward to some breakfast after that , wife said we'll scope out a Waffle House to get some grub

All of this is child's play after going thru a prostrate biopsy and the prep of a self-administered enema....Twice

Sorry for the delay I couldn't get on Pelican for several days not sure why Anyway procedure went as expected one polyp found it seems like I'm good for one polyp every 5 years . The doctor wasn't concerned in its appearance but it was sent off to the lab for analysis . I should be good for another 5 years .

This issue has me a bit confused. Kaiser says I need one every ten years. Last time my primary care guy scheduled one, the doctor who did the one three years before called to say they only did them every ten years. That was eight years ago now. He couldn't complete the last one because of diverticulosis and send me to the barium route. My father had colon cancer which went to his liver & brain before he died of it. Didn't make any difference when I t old him that. I was under the impression you did one every five years or so after your 50s, especially if you had a primary relative who had died from it.

Went to get mine scheduled last week. I went in to talk about an endoscopy because I've had some GERD-like problems and a real bad occurrence last week that led to 40 hours of hiccups. Doc's asst. said to do a colonoscopy at the same time, since it's a two-fer with the anesthesiologist, and my dad had just reminded me that he had some polyps at his first one at age 50. Guess I'll get an early start on this.

If you have no history then you should get your first one at 50, earlier if you have a family history. The outcome of that first one will determine when you should get your next. I had my first at 50, they found a polyp or two, sent them to the lab, benign, but rescheduled me for a followup in 3 years. Went in for that one, found another polyp, again benign, but now my next followup is in 5 years instead of 3. That's just my personal experience. I'm never going to get to the poop in a box and send it in method.

One thing for your first timers - have someone in the room with you when they go over the results, because at least for me I don't remember anything from recovery.
I don't even remember the ride home.

Well, I had my first colonoscopy at 67, so my second scheduled one on the ten year interval will be in almost 77 in two years. I did have two sigmoidoscopies in the eighties or early nineties. The first one was the ancient method where they shoved a pipe up your butt, removed a bullet shaped plug and looked in with some kind of scope.

Damn Byron so sorry to hear that ! But I agree 100 % with what you said we ( men ) need to take this seriously ! Yes the prep is a bother but if caught early the cancer can be treated . And for most of us the results will be good and you have a baseline for when the next needs to be done .

I'm officially retired on 12/1 and I wanted to get this done while still on the company insurance . Well apparently Aetna doesn't think every 5 years is needed so I had to pay more out of pocket than I was expecting . But it's not Aetna's health I'm worried about !!!

I'm a firm believer that there are two tests/procedures we as men need to pay attention to and that's prostate and colon . In 2015 I was found to have prostate cancer , it was diagnosed very early and taken care of . I may have lived with it for another 25 years or it could have killed me in two you have no way of knowing . You feeling lucky

Don't put the tests off guys.......... end of public service announcement
