That Procedure A Man Needs after the Age of 40
« on: August 16, 2021, 06:20:44 PM »
I have to start the prep on Wednesday afternoon at 2.  Dulcolax, Miralax, and then magnesium citrate the next morning.  Its a fun time.  You know what I'm talking about if you're doing what you should at your age, assuming you've reached that age.  My wife is bringing home all those presents when she gets home from work today.  Plus she's bringing me my diet for Wednesday, jello, juice and broth.  I can't believe its been 5 years.  I remember the last time so vividly.

Pick up a tube of desatin /diaper rash cream. 

It'll help with the fire.

The prep may be a hassle, but it may help you avoid a much larger hassle.

So, do you sip, sip, sip like a fine wine? or just guzzle like a fraternity beer party? :D

About three weeks ago, I took my older slow brother in for a checkup.  The doc said with modern blood tests, they can check so many more things now with current diagnostics.  He brought up the procedure you're talking about, and he said that he doesn't ask men to get those until after 50.  Just interesting.
Life is short, tragedy is instant, it's what we do with our time in between that matters.  Always strive to do better, to be better.

You need to drink as quickly as possible if you hope to make it to the toilet by the time you are done drinking it😬

If youre in touch with your guts feelings (like I am with my Crohns) then you just remember to stay CLOSE to the head, because just when you think that youre done, here it comes again Margaret! :o

Had mine a few days before the pig roast.  Doctor says I am going to die before I need another one.  Results were good.

Along with the Cecil B. DeMille process of sticking a camera up your kester, my saw bones gives me a kit every year at my "Good Health" exam that takes a stool sample to see any mutated dna in your colon.  I like it a whole lot better than the "ready when you are CB".

Folks of an age will recognize the CB.

Dont sweat the small stuff Bill, its far better than the alternative.
As you know Im all too aware of the alternative.
I will say that dulcolax and mag citrate was not my choice of prep though. My doc gave me Suprep and it worked Oh So Well.
Youll be fine and wont remember the procedure at all.
Wishing you the best for great results.

Thanks, guys.  This is my second one.  They did the last one due to problems I had been having.  I had bad reflux and I also have a small hiatal hernia.  5 years ago they did an endoscopy to look for any signs of cancer due to the reflux.  That was all good, but they did find an area of my esophagus that is called an inlet patch.  Ultimately, its a part of my esophagus that makes its own stomach acid and causes discomfort.  I take a ppi(proton pump inhibitor) every morning to stop the stomach acid brewing too much.

 @DbltreeBelgians , Brent, your experience makes it really hard for a guy to complain about drinking some miralax, getting put to sleep and waking up really hungry.

There is epidemic of Colon Cancer with much younger people and when they get it young it gets serious fast. I know of a couple of folks in their early 40s who succumbed to it. I did my second round last year, they did not find anything so one more time when I am 70 and I am done.

I also started in my 40s because of my mom having had colon cancer, since then both my brother and myself have had polyps removed before they caused a problem. On my first one they didn't give me enough "sleep juice" and I was fully awake and talking to the doc on the "way out", it surprised him. When I told the guys at work about it I said I got to see my ---- slam shut, you know the entry point, and asked if anyone wanted to see the video but no takers :D. It is important so go git-er-done!
