    bottom line is - super important to be checked for colon cancer, but there’s other things they look for too.

    and lesson I learned - HAVE BABY WIPES ON HAND. Felt like I was shitting glass by the time I was done with the prep.
    Good info! Anther reason to get it done, who knows what they could find.

    Had a colonoscopy last year at 49. Have colon cancer in my immediate family, so I am not ****ing around with it. They found some precancerous stuff and removed. Get checked!!! All joking aside.
