The weather here the last few days has been unseasonably warm. I don’t mind the warm weather one bit. I just hope the storms that usually occur behind it aren’t bad.
Today I had my last doctor appointment……the dreaded colonoscopy or my 50th birthday present to myself. It is what I refer to as the necessary evil. My appointment was at 11:00 this morning. Of course I was there early but did not get called until 12:15. I was not a happy camper.LOL As anyone knows who has had this procedure done you are already starving and any extra time you have to wait just makes it worse. I think we finally headed home after 2:00 p.m. All joking aside I was relieved to get a good report. Having a routine colonoscopy is so important in detecting cancer early. Sadly, earlier this month my cousin Billy died from colon cancer. I don’t think he had ever been tested. Early detection probably would have saved his life. So, as much as I complain about the prep and process of the procedure I am so grateful that it exists.
Laugh everyday. Happy trails. Stay safe.
I am 63 and just scheduled my first...not looking forward to it..Ugh! Glad you had a good outcome.ReplyDelete
The worst is the prep...after that it's a piece of cake..McGyver has to have one every 5 years..This year when we go back his Cardio guy wants the Colonoscopy and the Endoscopy..which is basically being reemed from both ends..YUCK!ReplyDelete
I had mine last year and was surprised with the prep! I had to drink that junk but it went well and I was not soar thanks to plenty of Vaseline... TMI.. Oh well I had a good report too and wont have to go back for some time.ReplyDelete

Ohhh, well good for you. I hate the prep. Have had two, and have to have them every three years. Dreading the next one already. But yes, I agree it does save lives and I always feel good when it's over with...ReplyDelete
The prep is the worst and the recovery is the funniest....getting rid of all that air in your bowel. There was a loud chorus when I had mine!!! LOL!!!ReplyDelete
