I think even if you are considered 'preventative', it's still changed considerably from the way it was being handled. Even first-timers.

I thought it was a good thing when my GI doctor joined the same physicians group as my primary doc. Until I went for my annual physical after work last night and she started to chastise me because my weight was higher than it was the last time I was weighed, which happened to be the morning of my colonoscopy - oops!

OK, got mine done yesterday, and all was clear, thank you Lord.

Prep was OK; about as bad as I thought it would be, and the procedure went well with just a little stomach discomfort for about 1/2 hour afterwards (gas pains? not sure), but after a while it was much better and feel great today.

I'm 51 so I'm good for another 10 years, and I recommend everyone my age and older to not hesitate.

Thanks Skittles! It really did make me feel better after.

One thing though, when I went into the OR, the doc and I were chatting and I told him I was getting it done right when I was supposed to because I wanted to be around for my 7 year old. He responded saying, well, at least he'll have the insurance money if you don't make it. Honestly, I was a little apoplectic. I should have said, yes, he'll have my insurance money as well as the money he gets from suing you. I was a little bent after his remark, but maybe I was a little sensitive at that moment, lol.

You probably felt a tad vulnerable at that moment.

Well, considering what was about to happen, I did, lol, although I did think that comment was a bit out of place.
Timing might have been better had he stated that after smile

I had my annual follow up yesterday, a little more than a year after my initial procedure and thankfully everything was all clear. I don't have to be screened again for 3 years. My doctor was very candid that if I had not had the initial screening done and those polyps removed they would have turned cancerous. I am very thankful that I had this done last year and that I have received an all clear follow up.

OK
TJ....that's great news. As someone who lost my brother to cancer way too young, i enjoy hearing about someone who was able to shoot the finger to cancer.
