It's been 14 yrs...
Ah. That time. Get some reading material for the reading room. Wish you well. Glad for you.
(im no doctor)
Sorry sir. Had to run the da down for his a few weeks ago. Just a spot check on his diverticulitis, had it since Vietnam (AO exposure). Hope yours is similarly uneventful/good news.
Our favorite niece's husband was given a choice by his doctor and chose "Cologuard" over "the procedure". Funnily he is one of those phobic people who don't like any sort of 'ick'. For instance, we keep disinfectant towelettes on hand for when he comes over...keeps him from washing his hands a dozen times before and during dinner. He is very appreciative of that.
He's now on his 4th week of avoiding that box. We started a pool on him, I've got June.
Time to clean out the old pipes...
I documented my experience
Beats dying from cancer (that's how I view it)
I've had one every year for 5 yrs... you get used to them.
What other procedure involving anesthetic do you get greeted afterwards with a nice cup of tea and sandwiches?....
Just think about the propofol, that makes it all worthwhile.
Insert obligatory link to Dave Barry's column, "A journey into my colon — and yours" here. Exit quote:
Analysis: Absolutely true.
When I get mine done and they're shooting the sleepy juice into my IV, I always say "wake me up when we get to Cleveland!" The team usually chuckles.
When I come out of the anesthesia, I exclaim, "Are we in Cleveland?" And that always gets a huge laff.
I think they've given me different stuff each year...
so far, moviprep requires the least amount of mix to drink, one consolation..
they all work, though...it's kinda weird having the liquid runs without being sick in the guts as well.
Best sleep I’ve had in quite some time.
I did the Cologuard three or four years ago. Piece of cake. Then in 2020 my doctor said to do the "Full Monty"......I had heard all kinds of horror stories about the prep, but I didn't find it THAT difficult. In fact, it went so easy, I was afraid it wasn't "successful", and it wouldn't be OK. After the procedure, my doctor told me (and showed me pictures.....I guess no pics/it didn't happen) and said it was a great success. I don't have to do it again for ten years. I'm not making bets that I'll even be around in ten years.
Yup, one of the few times in my life I've awoken without dread. I call it dreamy but it's pure nothingness which I find very relaxing, none of those pesky dreams involved. That's why it's dreamy
I've been scoped twice. Both times I had to prep with Gavilite (sp?). A gallon jug to be consumed in two days. Effective as anything. By the time I was done, I was certain that my intestines had been cleansed.
The procedure was nothing memorable - anesthetic will do that for you.
OP - I would look forward to the day of the exam, it's the two days before the exam that are the worst part. I hope your exam shows no problems.
I can only offer this advice, if you want to make the prep go much better, happier, and smoother;
One and done. Then you're good for few years.
