I had my colonoscopy yesterday and other than a few tiny little polyps, all went well. If you are over 50 or have any symptoms, GO GET ONE! All the horror stories you hear are just that - horror stories. The prep is probably the worst, but even that was a non-event. I just got my Kindle Fire with good book and a few hours later was drinking a cup of tea and checking my email. The procedure itself is even more of a non-event.
Listen to Bill and Joanie and get checked!
Fireplace, yarn, knitting needles, books, wine... check. Yup, I'm ready for winter.
