A few weeks ago, I had a colonoscopy, and I forgot to talk about it until now. It was the last part of my over 50 well male physical and a very important part. Many people die from colon cancer when, due to the slow way it grows, a simple procedure like a colonoscopy can discover it before it is fatal.
The procedure itself took less than an hour, the preparation the 24 hours before. The preparation is a simple matter of drinking a rather foul tasting liquid that went straight through the body carrying anything that is in your digestive track with it. — Oh boy! Also, you're not allowed to eat during that same 24 hours.
In the end, the results were that everything was okay and I am doing fine and I don't have to go back for five years. Yea, Me!
One of the few things that I found worthwhile regarding the ACA is that routine screening tests like this are completely covered. . Anyone with insurance now has this covered regardless of the plan.
Now that I've done my part for the public good by coming out in favor of colonoscopies; I'll resume my normal posting of irrelevant and funny stuff that crosses my mind. You have been warned.
