its not too bad the worst thing is the Dang needle to knock you out.  Man I hate those.  After three eye surgery's in the last year you would think I would be over it, but no I aint.  I remember saying to the lady that knocked me out....man that stuff burns like fire....she smugly said "It wont hurt long."  and she was right then I woke up.  Took out a couple of polyps, or I might not be here by now....I'll be 65 in March and I should probably get another one.  Lynns post, got me to take the first one.  My dr. couldn't get me to.  Tim

I have been on a 10 year schedule since my first colonoscopy.  As far as I am concerned the prep is worse than the procedure...

a fair number of "older folks"  wind up in the ED with nausea, vomiting diarrhea and dehydration, all from the prep.  we try to fix them up so they can still get the scope done, otherwise they will have to go thugh it again.  most of them swear they will never do it again!  remember old is defined as anyone older than me! :)

I agree with the prep being the worse part. I did the prep then took a walk. The walk turned into a run going back to the house. I didn't know I could run so fast. What was I thinking ::)

Because of my age my doc wants me to have a FIT test (don't remember what that stands for) every two years which is easy to check for signs of cancer, if it comes back positive they go in with the camera. I am a bit overdue but the clinic is not doing tests due to the pandemic so it's hurry up and wait. A good friend had benign polyps removed, a miserable procedure. She was told they probably would become malignant if left untreated. This is nothing to fool with or ignore.

Mine turned out well. 
3 polyps taken out again. 2 sent for biopsy. The new surgon believes I can wait 7 years for the next one.

I'm scheduled for an appointment with the "G"man on the 30th, we'll set up an appt for the procedure at that time!

I will have both an Endoscopy and a Colonoscopy on Monday September 21. This will be my 3rd colonoscopy, but the first time I was prescribed a split dose of the prep (PEG 3350, Sodium Cloride, Sodium Bicarbonate and Potassium Chloride for oral solution - with Lemon Flavor)  ::)
2 liters between 6pm - 8pm Sunday night and then the last 2 liters between 4am - 6am Monday morning. I have to be at the facility at 9am for the scheduled procedures.
Not sure I like this split dose method, but the nurse stated it gives the doctor a clearer view of the intestines and any polyps. I have had a few polyps removed during previous procedures so I guess this is for the best. One day every three or five years to prevent or catch anything in an early stage is not so bad.
But I sure will be glad come Tuesday morning...  :)

Add lemon aid powder to the mix, more palatable.
