Colonoscopy or not

Ok. I promise no pictures on this one. So many people are afraid of getting one done; and yet this procedure is so important to have done.  I have had 2 done. One about 10 years ago and one just a couple days ago. The worse part is the preparation for the procedure. . It’s bathroom time to clean your bowels.  When you have the procedure you are given something to take the edge off, fall asleep and next thing you know your awake passing gas…
Procedure done. Doctor talks to you about what they found… polyp or not. No pain at all. ..
So what are you afraid of? 
It is a routine, painless procedure that detects and PREVENTS CRC or correctal cancer. CRC is the 3rd leading cause of death from cancer in the United States. The potential cancer can be removed during the exam and up to 90% of CRC cases and deaths are preventable. So….. This procedure could save your life. Please do it not just for you, but your family. .. you are important,  they want you around for a long time!
If you need more information you can ask me I will tell you what I know and/or remember. ..I was doped up when they gave me a little something,  lol.
If you go to http://www.lowvolumeprep.com/colonoscopy they give you information on what to expect…
PLEASE take my word on this… it is “easy peasy”.
