random musings about colonoscopy (part six)

Thanks for listening to my random musings about my colonoscopy. I promise I won’t put you through this when I have another one in five years.

But, as a gastroenterology nurse practitioner, let me take this opportunity to encourage you to get a colonoscopy IF:
*You are over 50 years old, or
*Have a parent or sibling who has had colon polyps or cancer, or
*Are over 40 years old and have a change in your bowel movements.

And, get one done by a gastroenterologist.

The End.

PS. I heart fentanyl and versed.

I heart them, too. It almost, ALMOST, makes me want to get a colonoscopy even more frequently than q 5 years.
