All of this. Then I had a big lunch.

I think the fear of colonoscopy has the same source as the fear of prostate checks. It's storytellers playing to the homophobia of the audience. "Yes, I got something stuck up my ass, but I sure as hell didn't enjoy it! I'm all man."

Yes, they found and removed a polyp during my first colonoscopy that was the type that could turn cancerous. I now get them every 5 years. I think I've had 1 or 2, since, but not the type that would turn cancerous.

The prep is definitely the worst part, although it depends which type of prep you do. Some types just involve drinking a small amount of purgative, and lots of water. The last one I had, I had to drink about a gallon of nasty tasting stuff. You drink a cup every 15 mins. Pure hell. I actually projectile vomited at one point.

I was awake for my first colonoscopy, and watched the monitor while they did it. It was pretty uncomfortable, not surprisingly. I think I may have been awake for the second, as well, but the last few times I've been out, and it's a really light anesthetic (Propofol, the stuff that killed Michael Jackson), with pretty much no after effects.

Re: What is considered an "old timer" 'round here?

I had my first colonoscopy about three years ago and the stuff I had to drink before the procedure wasn't that bad, taste like Alka-Selter with a lime favor. I agreed the prep are the worst, the day before procedure you must be on liquid diet. I was sedated during my colonoscopy but I never fallen asleep but I felt like I smoke the biggest weed like that Cheech and Chong's flick Up In Smoke.

I don't mind colonoscopys that much, just so long as I can feel an odd number of hands on my back.

Ok...I'll ask. Are all those "Cool Kids Only so Fuck Yooooou!" and "We Don't Like those Mean Assholes There!" Forums/Groups that spun off for various reasons still around? Or have they died down as well?

The Island still exists in some form. It no longer has any relation to this place (most don't really post here anymore or never did) and is just a small collection of people who've known each other now for 15+ years. But it's still there. I'm assuming it's the "Cool Kids Only" one in your eyes?

Happy to hear it... wait, I mean, not the part about having cancerous polyps, but the... Oh, forget it!

For my part, it has nothing to do with homophobia, subconscious or overt. I have had hang-ups about bum-related issues since I was a small child, as my defecation stories here attest. I just don't like the thought of someone, anyone, putting a finger up my bung, but since I'm in my 40s I'll have to get a prostate exam sooner or later.

No, not at all. Just normal aging. Plus raising kids. Being heavy into local politics probably doesn't help. She's her town's council representative.

Yep. She loves to post pics of her family.

Anyone with more than 20,000 posts has wasted their life here. In a good way.

Blockbuster rents the UNRATED version of Caligula as well as many titles that could easily be considered softcore pornography.
