If you’re reading this and you’re under 50, you can for the most part ignore this thread. If you’re 50, or over.......this is for you.

Get yourself a colonoscopy screening.......period.

The procedure itself is nothing. Thirty to forty minutes in the OR , thirty minutes in recovery, and you’re good to go.

For me, the Prep is a killer. That ####that you have to drink is the vilest stuff known to man. I stood at the sink gagging down 16 ounces of that awful tasting crap. And you not only have to do 5hat once, but again 12 hours later. I gagged the entire time.

Why do it then? As I understand it ass cancer is a damned painful way to die. If you don’t have any polyps at 50, you’re good for the next ten years. I had my second at 60, and the Doc found three benign ones.......so I had to have my third today at 65. Two more today......so I’m good for five more years.

The Doc did find, however, a skin growth that I need to have surgically removed. Skin cancer is nothing to frig around with either.

Is this procedure fun? Nope!
Is the Prep a Royal, flaming pain in the ass? Yup!
Is spending the day in the bathroom shitting your brains out much fun? Not unless you’re a masochist.

Then why subject yourself to this? A) It might just save your life. B) Your loved ones probably want you around for a few more years.

Get it done guys and gals. It will, perhaps, save your life. End of today’s sermon. ;-)

Dave, great advice. I have had a series of colonoscopies over the last 20 years and I also had benign polyps that were removed. I must however take issue with your depiction of the prep process. The newer preps are a 99% improvement over the old solutions. The very worst involves drinking a bunch of Gatorade in a few hours with an absolutely tasteless additive.

Trust me people, this is a painless and extremely easy procedure for any guy with balls bigger than a gnat's. It could also save your life.
