Going in for my 5 year....procedure. My family has a history of colon cancer, so it's good to stay on top of it. I only wish it would go like this:

I had to go with my ex when she went for both and endoscopy and colonoscapy as she had sedation to make the process easier, they found a few areas that they were a little concerned about and took a couple of biopsy's, luckily enough they were benign. Hope things go well for you buddy.

I've had 4 before, the hardest part is the prep. Found a few things, always benign. They give you deep sedation these days, it almost like general anesthesia (gas). No sweat, just lots of s--t. LOL

Thanks buddy, I appreciate the support.

I've already had 4 myself. I hate the prep sooooooo much. Usually get an endoscopy at the same time. I always joke and say go down the throat first lol.

I get it. I've only had 1 and the prep is the worst part by far. I don't know if I can do that again!

Hello. I was just thinking the other day I had not seen you around much lately. Following my treatment in the summer I have to have endoscopic check and colonoscopy on 23rd December! Just not what I wanted for Christmas. Travel 100 miles for it but I guess I have to remain grateful. And it is being done under a general.

Getting cleaned out for the Holidays as well! Both my wife and I have one scheduled for December. Hey, it's the prudent thing to do when you get older. Everyone's doing it!

You're a veteran now, you know it's a breeze! The hardest part is the prep, as noted in my video above.
