    Been there... done that...
    I tried to refuse it... BUT, wifey kept bugging me. Doc then explained that they would travel as far as they could, which could be several feets up stream... haha... I woke up later, still drugged and with involuntary fluid coming out of it. :behindsofa:

    You're not helping them sell me on the whole experience.

    Had a buddy use Colorguard which is a at home test. It checks the stool dna in the sample you collect and send in. It is less accurate than a scope but better than waiting

    Relax man, the hardest part is drinking the flushing solution. You'll get a nice shot of propofol (Diprivan) to put you to sleep and the next thing you know you'll be eating cookies and drinking orange juice. They let you lie around to fart a bit and then you can head to Denny's and get that Grand Slam breakfast. Almost like a vacation :becky:.

    Fear begins sitting in the Dr office and hearing the words
    “ I’m sorry , you have Cancer “
    Then you realize, the Doc is talking to you...

    Get checked ODT group , start asking for the PSA blood test at 45.
    It’s cheap assurance , and if the 40% of you in your 40’s are identified, you’ll be ahead of the game for successful outcome , rather than the 50% of men in their 50’s that have it .
    Yes those are the true statistics, I learned the hard-way at 46 yrs old .
    Be smart , get good health information.

    I am young "relative" and found out at 41 I had an enlarged prostate, psa numbers are good. Thankfull for that. Already had it checked twice and a prosate procedure due to the size. I can only wait for what fun awaits me as I age.

    That flush solution sucks. Doc sent the kit to my house and I had to start the cleaning procedure, I think was 24 hours prior to the test. I had to rush many times to the small room "where the child moans and Mom don't hear..." (toilet room... hahaha) - And literally moaning and pushing all the watertery waste out...

    I've already had to do that part before. Had my gall bladder removed in 98 and they gave me this nasty **** called Go Lytely. Tasted like a flat Alka Seltzer mixed with sea water. At one point there was no piunt in even getting up from the toilet. And by the end I needed a hair dryer way more than toilet paper.
