When I was young my parents took me to a dentist who specialized in extraction. He was bitterly cruel when he filled a tooth, No novacaine, but usually he let the teeth rot until they abscessed and then extracted them. For years I left my fingerprints on every dental chair. Then I went to the UofW dental clinic and met a young dentist who was so kind and gentle I actually fell asleep while he was working on my teeth. Dentistry has changed ever so much in the past seventy some years.
lol about the dentist when I was really little it was that way too...I was also afraid of the dentist then my mom found one that used novacain! lol
But, yes I had it really really young, I was only like 14 years old. But, I try to eat a lot of fiber now and so far it hasn't came back.
that's terrible way to have a colon... you poor thing
reminds me of when we went to a dentist as a kid, no novocaine...ouch
I didn't know that you had cancer...and here you still are to talk about it...yay for you
Hope you feel better soon
Yes my mom is a dr, I need to have her check me out probably, I was nauseated all day yesterday. UHG.
I don't like colonscope things either, but I will say it's a lot easier now then back in the day. The first time I had colon cancer it used to be a week long cleansing-only eating veggies for 2 days, then only clear liquids for like 4 days, then two days of the nasty stuff, and ending with whole clean out thing! UHG. I was kind of shocked when sometimes it's just the day before now. And the best thing about todays is they put you twilight in the hospital. My first ones were in the drs office with out being given anything, I asked it I could even just have a asprin and was told no....it was quite horrifying, I started crying when they wanted to continue to do them, as my dr had lied to me he said if it was too bad he would stop, when he started cutting the biopsys I said it was too bad to please stop and he wouldn't he just said for me to relax.....yeah easy for him to say. So when he wanted to do more, I cried....then I heard there was GI doctors and I asked if I could go to one of them, and then when the GI dr said yes I indeed had to have more since I had cancer, I cried again and he asked why and I said cause it's so painful...I would like to at least have a advil or something and he didn't know what I was talking about when I explained my first was in the drs office with out anything he said I was going to be in twilight and all that and that doing it the way my dr did was harder for the dr and the patient....wow it was so much better that way! They (laws my mom said) don't allow it to be done in the drs office any more like that. But, that was like 25 years ago. Right now I think I have colitis though, I think that's what causing the nausea. I've been having quite a bit of bleeding with it. But, it's not as painful as it was when I had cancer. So....not sure. A lot of stress though the past 3 years for me...and I think it's finally catching up with me resulting in colitis-at least that's what it is seeming between the bleeding and the nausea.
I'm making progress on the february newsletters! Not as much as I would like, but progress none the less.

Good morning Team,
I awoke to a phone call setting up my colonoscopy...what a way to wake up. Two weeks from today. I am not looking forward to two days out of my life for this thing, drinking that gallon of stuff, and all that goes with it. This will be my first, and hopefully my last...hubby has had 3 of them because of the way his health was going and they couldn't find his problem a couple of years ago. Now, that seems so long ago. Now, he is back to his vibrant self. Praise God
