You Know You Really Feel Middle Age When . . .

. . . you go for that first colonoscopy. Yes, that's what I did yesterday on a bright absolutely beautifully warm and sunny autumn day. The previous day we had torrential rain. The day of my prep. It is as they say, the prep is the worst part. The procedure is nothing. For prep I took my four pills at 2:30 in the afternoon, by 5pm I was feeling nauseous. It went away in 15 minutes or so, just shortly before I had to start drinking 8 oz. of that awful tasting stuff every 10 minutes until it was all gone. You know the rest. The actual procedure took only about 15 minutes. No polyps or anything. I have 5 years before I have to do it again.
If you haven't had it done and you're over 50, get it done. It's really not a big deal. It's worth it for the peace of mind. Want to learn more?
