Ode To The Colonoscopy
At my age a colonoscopy is usually performed at five year intervals
polyps are found, then it is a three year interval.
I'm on three year intervals.
Three years ago was my first colonoscopy and some benign polyps were
thus it was time again for another colonoscopy.
You know the routine.
Eat nothing the day before the exam.
The night before, drink a about a liter pf "radiator flush" solution
designed to flush
a 30 foot long tube consisting of your intestines and colon.
This last time around had a little problem.
The standard size "radiator flush" didn't do the job and the
colonoscopy had to be aborted.
Two weeks later, time for a repeat performance except this time a
"radiator flush" (larger size, about two liters) and an extra days
This is something you don't want to wish on your worst enemy.
Even "Super flush" wasn't perfect, but it got the job done.
On the way home way ready to eat the rear end out of a skunk, so
got an order of greasy, gooey, chili cheese fries.
Cholesterol be damned, this was survival and they sure did taste good.
Repeat performance in 2 tears since they removed a few polyps.
