Well, when you lose your keys as often as I do...

Let's just say twilight anesthesia is a really good thing.


Really good.

Sure, they *say* this, but you post one 30 second video to your ex-girlfriend's Facebook and suddenly it's "pervert" this and "restraining order" that.

It's important to work your way up to advanced photography.

But the results speak for themselves.

Senior tip to a veteran of scopes, buy a lemon and cut slices to get that gak taste out of your mouth and make the go lightly easier to get down .

I'm sure it is, if it works. About two minutes into the procedure I was wide awake. It wasn't pleasant.

Why pay for those expensive doctors to do it?

Just had mine done ... and opted for no sedation. No recovery time. Totally worth it.

Ask how many people don't do anaesthesia. More than you think. And it doesn't take long and it is a bit odd but not horrible.

You're insane. I've been awake during two of mine, despite being given drugs. Aside from my back injuries, two of the worst pains I've ever had. It was "uncomfortable" like a compound fracture is uncomfortable.

/ yeah, I'm a wuss

I had a friend who had a colonoscopy and a biopsy done at the same time. It was done because of a history of colon cancer in her family which cost her a brother and most of her own bowel.The biopsy was botched and she lost a ton of blood. Half a year later when she hadn't recovered they noticed that the cancer had spread to her liver, and she died pretty soon after.

I guess the moral of the story is that you need to get checked, but don't think a clean scan gets you off the hook. Get whatever blood work you can.
 
2018-03-01 11:44:48 AM  
I don't bother to make an appointment for a colonoscopy. I just get myself pulled over and squirm uncomfortably in my seat in front of the police. They'll take care of the rest of the arrangements for me that day.

Wow, I'm very sorry to hear that. I'd definitely report the anesthesiologist to the hospital.

 I had no memory of the entire procedure. Gas on, lights out, woke up later.

My uncle was recently nearly killed (as in they were saying "pull the plug*" if he doesn't come to after a couple of days) when they nicked him in this procedure.  Six months later he is still recovering.  Granted, he's in his 70s and had pre-cancerous bits removed (making any comment from my father about his brother being "full of shait" having to admit that it no longer takes as much to fill him up).

I really have to wonder if having this type of procedure makes you more or less likely to live any longer.  US health care is farked in so many ways, it leaves little reason to trust it.
/* they actually said "palliative care", but it means the same thing.

The prep is worse than the procedure, but none of it is horrible. Aloe infused wipes and vaseline are your friends, so are pee pads. Put one on your chair and on your bed when you want to sleep but are kind of afraid to.

Follow the food restriction part of the prep to the letter. If you don't, you can get sent home to do it all over again in a couple of months.

I have done it twice now and get to do it again in 4 years. I am on the 5 year plan because my Dad died of colon cancer.
 
2018-03-01 12:04:58 PM  
Did you know they use the same exact instrument for the top end and bottom end endoscopy? Often the same identical device is used for both procedures.

If you don't piss off the staff they even clean & disinfect it between uses too.

My best friend's husband had colon cancer that was caught early because of a colonoscopy and he made a full recovery and is now 12 years cancer free. My Dad never had one and died of colon cancer. I am firmly in the "they are worth it" camp.

Yeah, the prep is total cake. The 2 litres of drink you have to mix and consume doesn't taste nearly as bad as they say it does, and you'll ass-pee a while, big deal. Even if the experience totally sucks out loud it's still a damn sight better than dying of cancer. Just go get the damn test already you big babies.

I've been having some GI wonkiness, so I may wind up deep-throating a camera later this month.
 
2018-03-01 12:14:26 PM  
My docs said you can just do a yearly poo-smear (fecal occult blood test) and not do the colonoscopy.

But they do enjoy "looking up" old firends

Do it.
Mine was caught early so I didn't need chemo or radiation. One of my sisters had Stage 3 at 46. Both of us had to have our colons removed because of 2 bad genetic markers - No family history because our parents (and so on) were only carriers of the cancer genes.

The prep is super fun. Clear liquid diet for a day, then the prep medicine makes you pee our your butt for hours. Enjoy, all you newbies!
