OK, not really, but you gotta have a sense of humor, right?
I informed my brother,The Banker, about the upcoming test and he had one scheduled for the day after mine. I suggested we have them on the same day, together, so we could hold hands during the procedure. He figured he'd be alright on his own, but he sent me a text, grateful that we would soon get these tests "behind" us and wished me luck. He was certain everything would come out fine "in the end." (Who knew bankers could be funny?) Of course, since my test preceded his, I reminded him that he would soon be the "butt" of the jokes, so he'd better be nice!
The other highlight occurred in the recovery area where all the patients were separated by curtains. Sound travels easily, needless to say. Part of the procedure requires that the doctor inflate the bowel with air....and that air needs to come out. Did you ever see the campfire scene in Blazing Saddles? 'Nuf said.
See? Colonoscopies are fun!
Have all you 50+ readers had your colonsocopy? Have you approached a similar test with a little humor? Trust me, it helps!
Have you been there?
