I ain't sticking anything up my ass that doesn't pay me in money.

Or cigarettes.

Ha! Nuts to you! When I had my colon resection, they went ahead and took out my appendix!

Pfffftttt ... colonoscopies are nothing. You ain't a real man until they've jammed a camera up your peener to take a look at your bladder.

Word to the wise, go get some warm air blown up your butt. The lives saved are not "rare" or "suggests" like this article figures. Figures may not lie but figurers will for a small fee.

If your colonoscopy triggers appendicitis, your doctor probably has an astigmatism.

I don't have an appendix, so there!

/I knew that emergency appendectomy would come in handy

I'm fine with "looking up" old friends

butt have been told lately by multiple doctors that a yearly stool check (fecal occult blood test)
replaces the need for a colonoscopy

The actually procedure is nothing. The preparation for the procedure sucks ass.

Patient compliance with that test is notoriously poor and if you have a positive result, you're going to need to get a colonoscopy anyway.  So skip the middle man and just get your colonoscopy.  If there are no problems, you're good for 10 years.

I expect a reach around, minimum.

My colonoscopy triggered diverticulitis, so I got that going for me, which is nice.

Funny, I had mine after my appendicitis (it was a requirement before I could have surgery).

More like blows ass. Actually, the phrase "blow it out your ass" came about after human trials for the prep medicine.

Ah, I see you have experience with prep liquid.

Having just had my first colonoscopy two weeks ago, I'm getting a kick out of this but, so far ,without the appendicitis.

Sounds like they delved too greedily and too deep.

If you RTFA you find that there's a sharp increase in probability during the week after the procedure, after which it drops back to it's usual value of epsilon.

Submitter fail. Appendicits should be plural. Appendicitides is correct.

I also have experience with ongoing discomfort after the colonoscopy. For 4-5 months afterward, I experienced sensation in the start of my ascending colon - which happens to coincide with the location of the appendix. Sensation ranged from (for example) mild gas discomfort, to brief but intense spasms - painful but not quite curled-up-in-the-foetal-position. I still get the odd twinge there occasionally. I've wondered if there was some damage from the 'scope - not perforation, but maybe an abrasion or bruise. I asked my GP to put it in his notes for future reference, and I'll ask the next bum doctor surgeon to have a look around there for scar tissue, or signs of a chronic low-level infection in the appendix.

I asked the doctor who did my colonoscopy if I could have a picture of my insides and he said no.  I have other pictures, x-rays, EKGs, etc, a collection me.
