Not to Stick My Nose Up Your Butt, But....

Amid all the relatively good news at the doctor today there was one drawback: I have to schedule my colonoscopy. Now, I'm not one who likes to stick my nose up your butt, but..... If you're over 50, please get one. The worst thing about it is the prep, which isn't so bad anymore now that you don't have to guzzle that goop you used to have to drink. Now (or the last time I had mine) it's a whole lot of Miralax in half a gallon of Gatorade, and you're good to go. And go. And go. AND go. It's a day of inconvenience, but it's much, much better and easier than dealing with colon cancer. Found this cute CCR parody on You Tube, which pretty much explains everything (including the flatulence):

I had one last year and it wasn't so bad. I made a mistake in prep and didn't eat for almost three days before it (don't know what I thought) and i took the drink (mine was like a little liquid that tasted like a good cough medicine) and barely went to the bathroom because my sister said i had no food in me I don't have to go to another one for four more years. i will get a notice in the mail when i need to get another one ( i got mine early too as my mom does of colon cancer. I myself had three cancerous polyps removed wish you all the best
