Bowel cancer or polyps or colonoscopy


Seems all are "old " topics on " search". Just finished my govt test, with a positive result. Visit specialist and on the table within three weeks. Super yucky prepicol the night before. On recovery " here is your appointment with surgeon next week". His opening remarks were " you are a lucky man"!. We removed two polyps, one at 3mm, one at 10mm. All good".

Come back in three years for another one however. BUT he says that bowel cancer will be a very rare event in 20 years if everyone over 50 does their Govt Bowel screen test on time, as polyps are the sole cause of bowel cancer and can easily be removed on the day.

it is a shame that the Irish invented the Prepicol, three sachets, to be sure, to be sure, to be sure!

And the Great new is Peter, " The prepicol " still tastes like the product it removes.
