I have been very fortunate, no doubt about it, to have had a doctor "on loan" here from the Mayo Clinic who did my first colonoscopy. He trained the doctors in the clinic he was associated with using his techniques, and they have done mine since then. I come home feeling absolutely wonderful every time. I wish I knew what their magic is, but everyone raves about them. I also have to have esophageal dilation done at the same time and never have a sore throat or any discomfort whatsoever. I have read other horror stories about colonoscopies and don't understand why the doctors are not more careful. I think they should hear about their maltreatment and try to relearn their method.

I was reading just now about ARA Plus being good for the colon. I take it every day. No colon cancer in my family, but plenty of polyps removed.

I hooked up mine todays ... got a little camera to slurpe and it took all pics of my intestines...during 24 hours... much easier then to come along in drinking junk instead ... Ok I hope I was the very first -one to be invited in this process...and none has done it before... talk about camera slurpings... (all about slurping down a capsule... not more and not less )............... but also this due to a good compagnon who knew about my terrifique love and trust to so called *white coated* and allopathic treatments ..... yesss peeps I know... I'm really environemed with gems of trustworthy friends and therapists' ...

I'm certainly all for progress, but I don't know how a camera could see in there any better than a doctor with all that you know what not being cleaned out! Our doctor has us on a diet for three days before so I, for one at least, don't need a whole lot of "drinking junk" to prepare for the test! We can't eat anything red - even jello - which I don't touch with a ten-foot pole anyway. I was able to stay on my diet and manage with no problems. The  liquid stuff went through me like crazy and that was that!

My father would probably still be alive today if he hadn't put off a colonoscopy.  Although it's a screening technique, they do remove polyps and prevent cancer by doing so.  Dad had one of those "virtual" colonoscopies and they thought they saw something and he put off doing something about it for a few years.  By the time he finally had one, the polyp had become cancerous and when they tried even the newest technologies to remove it, they failed.  It had implanted itself in the wall of the colon.  The surgery to remove that part of the colon which was supposed to be minimally invasive but when they got in there things changed and they had to cut him open from his chest all the way down.  He was 87.  This was a one of the best hospitals in the country with a surgeon who is the head of minimally invasive surgery for both Mass General and Brigham and Women's Hospitals.  He still managed to totally screw it up. He died about a month later and never left the hospital.  It's definitely worth having a colonoscopy in my opinion.

Spring, my prep sounds almost exactly like yours.

My DH just had a colonoscopy and had 2 small precancerous polyps removed during the process. He is type O+ hunter and is a big meat eater.
My ob/gyn has written a prescription for me each year since I was 55 to get one done. I cannot bring myself to do it...as mentioned before..too darned invasive! I don't have any problems with that area, thank goodness! My issues are all in my nasal cavity.
I will probably do it before I turn 70 but for now....

I was supposed to have one done when I turned 50, but I haven't done it yet...


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

Well I've not eaten all day.. I have 'juice altered brain syndrome!'  ha ha

Seriously, I've never had this type of brain chemistry when fasting.. It's bizarre.  I don't feel like doing anything and there is a very lightweight pressure inside my brain.    Maybe I'm on juice carb overload.  Who knows... I haven't drank this much juice in one day ever.  I have been doing water and Yerba as well.

I took the Supprep supplement at 4pm and have had the ensuing activity along with some horrid horrid cramping on my left side where I had surgery for a fibroid years ago. Ever since that surgery when I have bowel pressure, it hurts in that area.  I'm sure it's scar tissue.  

I get to drink liquids until midnight and then I suppose I get to go into dry mouth syndrome.  sigh.

I have to do another Supprep at 6am to finish off the cleansing and then my surgery is at 9am.  

Oh such joy.  I'm having my hubby bring some boiled eggs and a banana as I've lost the any desire to do any cooking or anything for that matter except sit here and wait for the next movement.

To put it lightly.. this is truly a pain in the as....

I'll be so glad to get back to some nice protein and veggies.  

I'll report back tomorrow after surgery.  Thanks for all your input. It's help me a lot.

BluesSinger, My wife and I have both had colonoscopies and they were no big deal at all. Nothing but sweet dreams from the IV and it's over in a blink.  The cleansing was the hard part, which did us both a lot of good. Eat healthy afterwards as everyone's suggested. Best wishes.

So nice to wake up and read everyones kind words!  yes this part has certainly not been fun.  Didn't get to sleep until midnight and I drank myself into a hot tea and broth stupor until then! ha ha ha...

I've only had 5 hours of sleep so I'm sure that I'll be snoozing after it's all done.  Thank goodness... then I can get on with life!  

Again, I sure appreciate the feedback.  My BTD family walking me through...

Since I have ulcerative colitis, they do a lot of biopsies on me so that my procedure is longer.  As a result, I usually have a pretty bad stomachache afterwards from all the air/gas, etc.  Drink lots of water and eat lightly afterwards.  Good luck.  It's really no big deal.  The prep is the worst part.

Some doctors remove the air after they finish the exam. They apparently did that for me because I never had any at all. Yes, the prep takes getting immediately into a regimen that we are totally not accustomed to AT ALL!  I remember waking up after the procedure and hearing the nurse talking to someone and thinking that they were getting ready to get started! But the deed was done, and I was soon out of there!! What a wonderful relief!! Especially when I got such a great report!!

NO POLYPS!!!!! No DIVERTICULOSIS!  OMG!!! I'm so grateful!  I wanted to dance and sing and shout to the world!  But who really cares!  ha ha ha...

After all the damage I did to my gut with bad eating and the horrible IBS I have had in the past and the swollen belly, etc., you'd think I'd be a total mess inside.   BUT I've been following Swami for almost a year and things have majorly improved.. slow but sure!  And I've certainly done my share of bit-shin.. about the healing process... but this is such great news.  Thank you God!  thank you Dr. D!  

And the other great news is I don't have to have another one for 10 years!!!
