Thursday, I'm having my every 5 year colonoscopy. Nothing found 5 years ago, hope nothings growed in there over the last 5 years.

How about the rest of you over 50 THF'rs, Got YOURS scheduled yet???????

Y'all don't personally know me nor I you but please, have it done. I didn't get one until I was 63 years old. I wasn't about to have that done, not me. I'm in pretty good health, and work hard. Well, I finally did and they found colon cancer. Long story short, I spent much of the year in the hospital, 4 abdominal surgeries and wore an ostomy for 6 months. I was so weak I couldn't work for over a year and because of the complications, I had home health visits 2 to 3 times a week for 6 months. I had a catheter in my right arm up to my heart for the entire time so they could directly infuse the medicines and fluids I needed. My wife had to do a lot of things throughout that time period she should not have had to do. She gave me countless injections, fluid infusions and for months, we had to wake up every 3 to 4 hours each night to empty the ostomy. It ain't fun folks and it is sure as heck not worth putting off the colonoscopy. Feb 1 was the two year anniversary of my first surgery. I have to go back for cancer screening every 6 months and probably will for the rest of my life. I still hate the colonoscopy procedure but I won't ever put it off again. JMHO.

I've had 2 and have no problems going for #3 when the time comes. First time in 1995, after going through the pregame preparation, got to the room and was greeted with an enema bag about 3 feet long and a willing nurse. Second time much easier. The whole process sounds worst than it turns out to be.

Bar-D, I hope everything goes well and you can remain out of danger of a re-occurrence.

I'm in a 5 year rotation and due another one before too long.

My wife is an endoscopy tech, and she has plenty of horror stories of people that waited way too long for their checkup. I will turn 50 this year, and she already has me scheduled. If you are 50+, you owe it to the people you love to get yours done.

I did at 60 and then again at 62 because of polyps they found at 60. They found nothing at 62....I really need to go back again. I'm 70.

Wife and I had them on the same day this year to celebrate our anniversary. Note: Not recommended unless you have more than one bathroom in the home.

Had one done about 5 years ago and was clean so I got a 10 year pass. Had a good friend die from colon cancer a few years ago. It was well advanced when he had his first colonoscopy around the age of 60 and he only lasted a few months more. Had zero symptoms before they found it.

Have been getting mine since my early 40's (family history & a really good doctor) and it saved me from cancer. I had 2 large polyps removed that the DR. said looked really bad but thankfully they were not cancer. Was put on a 1 year procedure for several years but am back up to 5 years now. Guys, the prep is the worst part of the whole thing. Man up and drink it, once they give you that good sleeping stuff the next thing you know is your are dressed.

First time at 53, Doc said clear no polyps, come back at 63. Still have scuff marks on the bathroom wall, though. Night before ain't fun and make sure you remove your shoes before you commence drinking the stuff.

I had my first one done 4 yrs ago at 58 yrs old with a clean bill then and told to come back in 3 yrs. That Dr. retired so had to go to a new one. New doctor and new preps. I had it done again last Sept. and was told clean bill again and would go to every 4 yrs due to not one polyp being found. Dr. told me I was the first in a couple of months without a single polyp. I have a family history of colon issues and surgeries to remove sections of it so I should never had waited as long as I did.

March 4th for me. I think thatís the date.

My first one was in 1980 as part of a physical for a new job. They didnít put you to sleep back then, and you didnít drink the goop. A really cute little blond gave me several enemas, and the room was full of people. No privacy at all, and then I had to ďhold itĒ for the 25 foot shuffle to the toilet. Truly a shi___ day, from every way you can imagine.

Had one or two since then. My new gastro guy says they are way easier than even in the last 5 years. Still gotta drink the goop.

Sounds to me like the line I got from a brain surgeon years ago. He told me if my tumor ever got big enough again to need surgery, the operation and techniques were much better now. I asked if they still had to saw a hole in my skull, and he said yes. Well, doesnít sound so dang much better to me. Some of the tumor, non-malignant, is still in there. They couldnít get to it all. 40 years and it hasnít caused any more problems.

Sorry about hijacking the thread.
