I had the screening when I turned 50 at my doctor’s recommendation. I disliked the prep, but the procedure was fine. I actually woke up prior to the end of the procedure. The anesthesiologist didn't intend for me to be awake at that point, but since nothing was bothering me, he kept me awake and talked to me as the procedure was completed. I got to see the pictures of my colon that the doctor was looking at - pretty cool!

As far as family history, my father was later diagnosed with Stage 1 colon cancer and was treated successfully with surgery.
