Colonoscopy – Pre-Screening Can Save Your Life

Hello All,

I just went through a weekend of liquid foods to a clear liquid day of laxative driven tonics. I can tell you that the worst part of a colonoscopy is the preparation. This was my first ever test of this kind. Because my papaw had colon cancer and died from it in 1985, I had to have this pre-screening. The best part of this whole experience was the positive experience I had..I was cold so the Nurse Anesthetist brought me 3 heated blankets….I believe nurses are angels anyway. I was given Propofol (I instantly thought of Michael Jackson and Dr. Murray) and once I was injected, I was asleep. Before I knew it, the procedure was over but they let me sleep it off for 25 minutes so that was nice. They told me to eat light so my husband and I went to Olive Garden and had a salad and this soup that had shrimp and fish in it with a tomato base. It was so good and just right for me to not have a reaction.

All in all, prevention is key and disease is harder to cure and it costs way more than prevention. The doctor said that when people get a pre-screening colonoscopy, any polyps, cancer, or tumors are caught just in time. Don’t wait and for goodness sake, don’t be afraid of it. It’s not so bad.
