    Colonoscopy

    Got back from the doctor and I am getting a colonoscopy soon and I'm gonna assume a good chunk of you guys here have had one. Yea its weird to do it at 19 but it needs to get done with my family history and I am having the same experience that my father had when he found out he had colon cancer.

    Anyway... what can I expect? My father said his was vastly different because they found a tumor in the first turn, so it was cut short and it wasn't that bad...

    Started drinking the stuff around 5pm (CDT) Thursday Night

    “It’s beyond pride. It’s a restored trust. There’s a confidence again, a passion that teeters on swagger. More than anything, (Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads) has restored the Iowa State “it” factor, the steadfast belief that it is great to be a Cyclone...the man’s enthusiasm is genuine to the core...”

    All kidding aside, good for you, for doing this at a young age given the family history.

    It's not bad at all. I've had two of them done (I'm 62) and don't remember a thing about either of them. Prepping for them is the worst part... the actual exam not a big deal at all. Fear not... you will do just fine

    It's not that bad. I had one a few years ago. A few tips on the night before.

    1 - Get the drink as cold as you can. It goes down easier when it's really cold.
    2 - Buy a couple of lemons. Down a glass of the drink and then stick a slice of lemon in your mouth. It will make the semi-nasty taste of the drink disappear.
    3 - Obviously, be ready to be in the bathroom a lot.

    Good luck to you!

    This isn't necessarily by choice. I'm having problems and it was the exact same problem my father had when he had a tumor and my aunt had those polyps things.

    They call it "Go Lightly" and you do go, but there's nothing lightly about it. And it tastes like, well, you know... My wife had to do this once and swore she'd never do the "Go Lightly" again - ever.

    Do yourself a favor and give yourself an enema instead. It accomplishes the same thing a whole lot faster and with less "going lightly". This will clear out the large intestine which is all they can scope anyways.
