First Colonoscopy Now Scheduled

Hi everyone,
Thanks to the many people who have posted on this thread and the colon cancer thread, I have now scheduled my first colonoscopy. I have been told that I needed one for more than seven years. Fear kept me saying no. You all got me to say yes. I have been having crampy pain in my abdomen for many years now. Not everyday, not everyweek, but consistantly there.
After reading from the individuals who are courageously fighting their disease, I felt like such a wimp. Now I am taking action for my own health.
Depending how it all comes out, you may have saved my life.
Kind Regards, Sivad

That's fantastic..don't worry, ain't nothin to it. In fact, just had one in November and am now busy with my income tax business...wish I could use the excuse I need to have one to leave this stress for a while...but will just have to wait another 6 1/2 years...the drugs are wonderful...just literally "lay back and relax"!

Good for you. I know how fear can be so hard to conquer. Whatever the results, you can get through it.
