I had my first colonoscopy 5 years ago at age 55. It saved my life as I had colon cancer, I was 100% cured by surgery. I had my second one a month ago. The prep the day before is troublesome because you take some medicine that makes you have to stay near a bathroom when you need it, which is often. But the procedure itself is quick and easy and it is done on an outpatient basis. It doesn't hurt and it's not uncomfortable. You wake up quick from the light anesthesia and you still have your day. Highly recommended for us men over 50. -Dave 6 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
