Yeah I agree, everytime I get one they remove polyps. And this not just for men, girls too. My wife's last one, they removed a big one, and doc said it is good thing she came in when she did, I had to really twist her arm to get her to go, good thing she listened to me.

the genetic test will tell if you have polyps or not. My Dr. was very clear on this. the only downside is you have to do it every three years.

An annual check for skin cancer is just as important.

Mine would have said the same. No one in my family has ever had it. It's good to listen to your Dr. up

I've got two under my belt. laugh 'Next one in 5 (or is it 7?) years 'cause they found a polyp. The older I get, the more fasting sux. Why is that?

Oh yeah RT, don't think you're gonna come out of the procedure all hungry as heck and eat whatever you want. Keep it bland for a while... trust me. Extra spicy Chicken E tenders were a lot spicier on the way out than on the way in.

The prep is the worst part. The next day you get a nice nap, then go eat a big meal.

I would have sworn I had only been asleep for a minute or two when they woke me up and told me they were done. The funny thing was that I felt rested like I had slept all night.

Just finished. 3 small polyps removed. Go back in 3-7 years depending on pathology. Best nap ever.

You guys are just lucky and don’t know it. I had a colonoscopy in 1980, which was required for a new job. I showed up full of poo, had 2 or 3 enemas that were performed by a cute blond nurse in a room with other medical folks. Then the scope was done with NO meds. It was awful.

Well, NORML, the job that I got after suffering through that scope job paid me over 7 times annually what I had been making in the job I left. It was a lifestyle changer. But, all they had told me was that I needed to pass a physical for the new job. I had never even heard the term colonoscopy, or the fact it was part of the upcoming physical.

I would have gladly had the scope job again, for that kind of big money. It was more like a short term bad experience for long term good luck.

I’m sure you can understand why I was very reluctant to get scoped years later. I was thinking all scope jobs were like that first one, but thank goodness they weren’t. Still unpleasant test though.

A very good post Roll Tide, such an easy thing to do that might save a life.

I did it at 48 years old and all was good. Doc told me to return when I am 60. So four more years and I will not put it off.
I am glad they knock you out for the exam, you just wake up and go home, after a double cheese burger.
