    Outstanding. This is the reason for my post. It's for your own sake as well as your wife and kids.

    Please schedule a colonoscopy soon.

    Take care.

    I am bringing this thread back about a year after my initial post.

    Yesterday I had a one year follow-up colonoscopy. I am a 45 year-old colon cancer survivor. I'm alive because it was caught early.

    Other than a small polyp that was removed during the procedure, I checked out OK and cancer free. I will get another colonoscopy in 1 to 3 years, depending on advice from the cancer doctor.

    This post is really not about me.

    It's about the people reading this post.

    If you are age 50 or older (age 40 if you have colon cancer in your family), please do yourself and your family a favor, and schedule a colonoscopy as soon as possible.

    It could save your life.

    It certainly saved mine.

    Don't make me come get you and give you a DIY colonoscopy

    Thanx.

    And thank you.

    This was the thread that got me off the bench and into the game.

    Two polyps removed. One was of no threat, the other was of the type that may turn into cancer.

    That is what got my brother going also. He had one. Don't know anything else.

    I'll be 45 in March. Our mom died of Colon cancer when she was 43.

    IMO,MY COLONOSPHY SAVED MY LIFE

    Seriously I am 55 and I am going to have my first latter this year.

    I am fortunate there has never been any cancer in my family; well my oldest sister had breast cancer. My PSA's have always been excellent.

    As they say, "Pride could be the death of you."

    49, first one in Sept last, small polyp nothing special, but a real sense of relief since my sister (55 in Feb) went through hell two and a half years ago.

    additionally, I would add to also get a full blood workup done every 6 months or at least yearly. Your blood is a window into your body, if something is wrong your bloodwork will show it.

    My second one is scheduled for the Jan. 19. The last time, 5 years ago, they found 10 polyps in the old hersey shute. It was kind of interesting watching the procedure on TV. They were all non-cancerous.

    Wonder what the count will be this time.????
