I am a wimp, really it's true. Nurses are terrible patients. My "experience," yesterday was really excellent. The prep being the worst of it. The office where these doctors practice was very professional. I was out like a light before they even peeked under my gown, which was fine by me. The doc was great, she said, "So basically this is; your 52 and we are screening you for colon cancer right"? Right.
Since ya'll just get jealous over the yard, even when I'm sharing how to just get started, we are switching topics today. Your health. Ohhhhhh no she is really going to recommend the Maxsquirts for everybody. Yep indeedy. No, I'm not still under the influence. When I worked in the hospital I worked oncology (cancer). Regardless of statistics, a majority of our inpatients have colon cancer. It is not nice. It does not play. Because you have no feeling in your colon symptoms present with advanced disease.
Young people die of this. One of the hardest cases I had as a hospice nurse was a 42 year old mother, and high school teacher; an incredible woman. Colon cancer killed her. It doesn't have to be.
We would all rather skip these exams, and the bills that go with them. A pelvic is no picnic either, and you are AWAKE for that. Seriously this isn't bad. One every 5 years, could mean the difference for growing old, and seeing your children graduate from college. My young teacher held out for her son's graduation and died shortly thereafter.
It's great news to hear "all is well". They can also snip polyps which can become cancer, just a little house cleaning, and no pain. So think about it.
I wish I could say I was funny too, but Daddy BB stole the show on that one. I just had a lovely nap. Thanks for all the kind thoughts. I don't own stock with any GI folks. I promise there is no kick back for me. just taking a break from fun ( I hope) to encourage you to care about your body, that's it. No pictures, definitely no pictures.
