I've had two. Prepping for the first one was TERRIBLE! Had to drink that chalky, thick white mixture with what seemed like two gallons of gatorade. Nothing found on first one, so cleared for ten years. Just had my 2nd one a year ago, and it was very smooth all the way around. The prep drink is much more palatable and has some acceptable taste to it. It's the cost of the stuff that is tough to swallow...and it's 'out of pocket' cost.

Anyway...I agree with everyone else who've stated; "Get it done, if you've never had one done." DON'T WAIT!

And just remember...if the Doc puts both hands on your hips at the same time...something is WRONG!

Me too ... and me too!


The first few years were a little anxious. When I was first diagnosed I thought I was a dead man. I'd been having symptoms for over 18 months and it had gotten really bad. Yup the Canadian medical system ain't nothing to be praised, that's for sure. First diagnosis had a reasonably bleak prognosis. Post surgery, the doctor was confident I wouldn't even need chemo ... and I didn't. Almost 10 years past and still no cancer.


Guys ... get checked. It's really not a big deal and it does save lives. I watched an aunt die of colon cancer because she was too modest to get checked.

A Colonoscopy is mild compared to the "Barium Enema" I had in the 70's.

Having a camera inserted into my urethra to view the bladder was worse than a colonoscopy.

Having 101 - Iodine-125 pellets shot into my prostate from the rectum was worse than a colonoscopy.

The prep is a PIA, Some prep juices are better than others.

Good sleep during the procedure is great!

Is that a light, or are you welding something?

What you see is the light of the colonoscope. What you barely see is the battery that I removed from the colon of a psychyatric patient swallowing all kind of foreign objects…..

Looks like a "AA" battery.

Good job Fastspek!
