Shit List – The Colonoscopy Prep

Hi Blog Friends!
I had to share this with you – Just received a text from a good friend asking for the link to my “poopie” article I wrote after my colonoscopy prepping ordeal. She has another friend drinking the juice tonight and wants to send it over to make her laugh….so while I was digging up the link I figured I’d re-post this just for the heck….actually, no, it’s a community service message because if you’re near my age and you haven’t had this done you really should – it’s not that bad….like my post says – the prep part is the torture. So I’m re-posting in honor of my former brother in law who passed away a month ago at the tender age of 52…..from colon cancer.

Last year it happened, the big five-oooooh tried to sneak up on me but I was prepared.  Knowing it was a big milestone year for all things health-related, I got in front of it by scheduling a bunch of check-up appointments ahead of time.  One thing I got done before the dreaded day was my first colonoscopy.

Ok, no one likes to think about getting old much less broadcast their (advanced) age to the whole world but this is something serious that we all need to get done just to be safe….end of lecture on that.

As the day before my first colonoscopy came to a close I realized that not only did I have the prep business to attend to but I had not picked up the icky orange stuff I had to drink to get it done.  A word to the wise:  there…

  1. I laughed out loud when I saw your post. It’s not really a laughing matter, but it suggests so many puns that it has to be a laughing matter. I speak from experience. I was scheduled to have a colonoscopy this very week, but cancelled when I came down with bronchitis. I didn’t want to have it anyway, so… But I am 67, even older than you! And I have major issues with a very unpredictable colon. This is the result of aggressive radiation I underwent six years ago for cervical cancer. The cancer had spread, so radiation was the treatment of choice. It worked: it killed the cancer, but it almost killed me. About two years after the radiation, the colon began to show its damage. Really, as they say in my house, “not table talk!” Let’s just say that I have had a shitty time of it. But I can live with it. Hey, it’s not cancer…
