But you will enjoy the moola in your checking account. Maybe they just care.

PS: I don't worry. I don't need ulcers.

Dont neglect your poop shoot.


What is the ideal routine maintenance for your poop chute? Are you supposed to douche it or something?

You use it as intended and when there is a hairball found, get it cut out.

Did you know your colon is 5 or 6 feet?

I'm gonna invent a procedure to remove and replace a defective colon.

You are going to do fine, you sound like you are in better shape than me, and remember this my little old grandmother had heart surgery at 87 years old and lived till she was 96. Hell the hard part is afterward, watching for infection, eating stuff that doesn't irritate it

I did not. But that explains why I sometimes feel a fart coming 20 minutes before it happens. I guess.

An artificial colon?

Wouldn't that be a semicolon?

I'm not going to go in for any colonoscopies, when I had my hernia operation they did one and I did not even know they did it. They wanted to check out if there was damage from my hernias, but they didn't find any. They saw a few tiny polyps, but said it was not anything to be worried about. I won't even give them my poop, that is just a way of making people fear and then having a colonoscopy. There are lots of false negatives in the poop test,, way more false negatives than real threats. But they get to stick it to you if you get hooked on pooping in a bag. Maybe I could send in some dog poop and say it is mine.

I lost 30lbs while I was sick.

Not a good way to lose it.

Last time I had a scope done, I asked the nurse to see if they could find my head.

You'll be fine.





some silly person might come along and tell you that they are up there too and they think they see your head!

On a serious note God speed the recovery of all with health issues! OP, makes me think that all WILL be well shortly for you.

Probably because they used an "air" insufflator instead of a "CO2" insufflator.

It'll pass.

If they already said it’s just benign then why are you worried? Everyone gets polyps, it’s not a big deal. My 72 year old mother has had two colon resections (removal of sigmoid etc.) and she’s fine. It’s mostly genetic (everything is, surprise) but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t eat healthy proteins and fats. Stay away from sugars at all costs.

At any rate, you’ll be fine and I wouldn’t give it a second thought. Just get it done and move on.

I’m curious, were you having symptoms or just wanted another colonoscopy for funsies?

As I have said, I'm not worried.
I do eat too much reeses cups and ruffells potato chips.
I postponed the procedure 1 year.

Put your big boy pants on, have the procedure/surgery done and continue to live cancer free for the next bit.

I had an organ removed, which did have cancer, laproscopicly (spelling - sorry) performed and was back at work cancer free in little over a week.
