I’m a lucky, lucky man. After going since 1986 since having my last colonoscopy, I just got home from the hospital. They found three polyps, all negative. I don’t have to go back for 5 years. Thanks everyone for your support. It really meant a lot to me, more than you’ll ever know. The worst part actually wasn’t drinking all the nasty stuff and going to the bathroom, this afternoon a nurse stuck me twice in my right hand trying to find a vein, then went and got a Dr. This bright guy thought he’d try the other arm. Without success, so they went back to the right arm. Finally after being stabbed 4 times they found a vein. I’ve never used heroin, I swear, so there is nothing wrong with my veins. They kept mummbling stuff like, bad vein, necroses, or obstruction, capsulated, bad one. Finally, just before I started crying MOMMY, they hit one. That was the worst of the whole day. You people know how long those needles are? Afterward my wife stopped at McDonalds and bought me a Frap, then off to Bob Evans for breakfast. Everything but a lollypop. Myself and my whole family have breathed a great sigh of relief. Ain’t my wife a sweety. mike- PS- I do have pictures. Weird looking. GO GET YOURS DONE, PLEASE!!!!

Glad to hear all is well. I’ve done this once and I am about due for the second.

Fortunately, I have veins that stand out and are easy to see.

Yay! that’s great to hear. I have sympathy over the needles – they can’t do them in my arms/hands so I usually have them done my neck. O.O (yeah ow.)

Sounds like a good celebration! :)

Very glad for you Mike very hard to hold that chalk in good thing they have a washroom close.
Your veins must like mine they can never find them but on my hands they are very large and very easy to see.

great news mike ,
glad you are good to go .

for a minute i thought you were going to show us ,
pictures of the clean shop .
i guess that’s another 5 years off too , huh . (LOL) ?

i wound up in the hospital years ago with my back locked .
they decided to do a spinal tap ,
laid me out on a metal cart in a backwards nighty ,
and slid that thing all the way up to my shoulder ,
left me in the hallway for 1/2 hour freezing ,
staring at the wall .
when they came back they said the test was inconclusive ,
so they did it again !
found out there was nothing wrong with me (there) ,
and put me in a wheelchair and out the door .
i went to the chiropractors ,and he popped my back ,
went back to work the next day .
cost me a bundle !

Thanks everyone, great relief. Sounds like a horror story David, I have a couple of those dealing with back surgeons. Awholes as far as I’m concerned. Sorry buddy. You too Lis, that sounds painful, ouch!

Thanks Pommy and Dick, Yea by the way I got Skype now so give a ring anytime. Yes Dick, one less thing to not worry about. Now I gotta get the patch and get off the cigars for the kids. I’m catching hell like you wouldn’t believe and I know after the 20+ years in factories around aspestos and working the wood they will kill me. Now if I could just find a way to have sex again I’d be right as rain, in fact I’d be a new man, I’d be some other man, but at 60 you kinda loose the tiger in the tank. The back injury in 03 took care of that anyway. Love to All and God Bless, mike, Thanks Charlie, yuk, and Rick. Hey Charlie, wanna see some real dirty pictures?

Bet your glad that’s over. And concratulations for going through with it. I don’t mind needles until they start poking around for just that right vein so I let them know right away when I figure out what there about to do that I don’t like that and they always give me a little shot with a very fine needle that deadends the area and then it’s a piece of cake. Guess they must have put it in there notes that Hey this guy will not only pass out but puke all over you.
