Colonoscopy if a same-day procedure which allows a doctor to look at your colon and part of the small intestine. A colonoscope is inserted and the doctor slowly examines the colon looking for polyps, cancer, or other issues. The procedure includes removal of any polyps. These are then tested for cancer.
Guess who went in for the ten year colonoscopy. This is my second. The actual experience isn't that back as the give you something to make you sleepy. I slept through most of it, but also watched some on the monitor. However that pineapple stuff you have to drink is just terrible. Orange would be a better flavor. It was at the end of each glass that the stuff would gag me. Or if I paused while drinking it I would gag. I had the just try to chug the stuff as best I could. I just received the report and now they are recommending every five years instead of ten.
