Colonoscopy

Post by Pyrrho » Fri Sep 12, 2014 6:47 pm

Doctor recommends one. His nurses enthusiastically agree.

I'm not too thrilled about the idea of having my interior probed.

It's not that bad.

Apart from the laxatives you have to take beforehand...

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

don't do it. you gotta put your foot down. which is worse? colon cancer or getting a red hot poker iron shoved up your asshole? I hear that if it hits a gas pocket, you'll explode. They'll take pictures and post them to their iCloud. You know what happens then. The nurses will make fun of your ugly anus while your half-way out.

"Does he even use toilet paper?" they'll ask. "LOL, no I don't think so," the doctor will reply.

It takes a real man to die of colon cancer. Be a real man.

Had one. Back then you just took handfuls of pills every 10 minutes for an hour with water, to purge. They stopped doing that I heard. After an hour, you blow out pretty thoroughly and drink nothing but clear fluids til the procedure.

After the procedure, you will awaken and cut earth shattering farts. They fill your colon with air, and it all has to come back out.

I've had 3 because I have ulcerative colitis. The "prep" was way worse for me than the procedure. No eating except jello, popsicles, and broth, all the while clearing out your bowels with some nasty stuff that made me want to vomit.
During the procedure they use "twilight" drugs so you're somewhat awake but the drugs will also make you not remember too much. It was a creepy feeling the times they had to take a biopsy.

A trip to the dentist is usually a much worse event than my colonoscopies were.

Over 50? The you need the yearly probing. And throw in the blood test for prostate cancer too.

Unnecessary. Those things don't change that often.

If you feel him put his hand on your shoulder during the procedure, and then you feel his other hand on your other shoulder...
