You get a general anaesthetic for colonoscopy in the US, Duane?  What luxury.
John, my guess is they do that just make the procedure run smooth by keeping people from physically and emotionally reacting. Other than that, Iíve no clue. No one asked what I wanted. SOP I guess.

Duane

With the advent of the new short acting drugs it has been found that not only is it easier on the patients as it relates to discomfort, anxiety, vital signs like blood pressure and general well being but it is easier on the doctors to probe without fear of causing pain. It may be a luxury but a welcome one

Agreed, but I'd still rather watch the monitor and have fewer drugs used on me.

I read a story last week about how those medical "scope" things are almost impossible to clean.  They spread infections from person to person.  Dozens of Americans die every year from being infected by medical scopes.  The story was about a demand that the design should be changed and the scope things in current use should all stop being used. 

Medical malpractice is the #3 cause of death in the US now, and trending up.  Uncleanable scopes is a part of the problem.

On reflection, next time I have a colonoscopy, and sadly there will be one, I would prefer, like JOhn, to watch the screen and know if the surgeon is being a bit rough.  Anaesthesia may be a carte blanche for busy hurried colonoscopists to puncture people's bowels by accident.  Hadn't thought of that before.  Would you know if your colon had been injured?


Thanks for the handy info about dirty colonoscopes, Bob.  I wish I hadn't read that, but you can't unread it!  I shall live in fear of iatrogenic illness from now on with every encounter with doctors!!

If they rip your colon, you will have blood in your bowel then it will repair, if you don't die. They can go ahead and do surgery to repair it. :-\ 

The complications stats that I found on the internet are 1.6% to 3.8%, with some other factors it is higher, like preexisting conditions. Some places have greater risks.

I won't have one unless I need one. I eat lots and lots of roughage. That takes care of pollips and the things that it is looking for. It feels lousy, uncomfortable, the thing does feel like it scrapes here and there. The doctors are proud of their profession, and have good faith in the AMA. What would you expect of their opinions?

Red blood is from the butt. Dark or black blood from up in there.

When I think about it, these are about the same odds as having an encounter on the trail with someone who objects to another's naked body, or gives some hassle. The risk is greater, however with the medical procedure. If you don't coverup knee jerk at every encounter, you have the same odds. If you go for a colonoscopy, then why do you coverup, or even feel concerned about hiking naked?

Quote from: Jbee
As friends age, as nudity becomes less commonplace, the spirit is forgotten, or passed over, but with a little encouragement in good conditions, it flourishes, is remembered and continues.
When I met you, DF, Ken and Amy and that was special. Wandering through wood and stream in an unfocused exploration with a small group of naked friends was a brand new experience for me. Unfortunately Iíve not done that again.

Within a group as large as DFís party, everyone would need to be at ease. Nudity still evokes a sense of intimacy even among friends and acquaintances that seek to be naked. There would have to be trust.

My visit to OLT was not as significant in that regard. I enjoyed it for the chance to be naked outdoors and within a larger group of people with the same preference, but I didnít know anyone there. I was a stranger. If I lived close to OLT or a place like that I would definitely make more visits and friends.

. . . who could sleep in a pool with a dozen chattering naked women in it?
My comment about falling asleep was more in response to total relaxation in a reservoir of warm water. Apparently the watzu practitioner never leaves you alone, so that isnít likely. If the women do invite their mates to participate it would be interesting to get a comparison of behavior between to two events.

Had my colonoscopy last week. One second an anesthesiologist was unscrewing the syringe of propofol from the port in my hand and the next a nurse was yelling at me to wake up. Time flies when you're having fun. I had one benign polyp and have to repeat the process in 5 years. The worst part of the whole process was having to drink all that laxative the day before.

Also, another bad thing was the missed opportunity to mow my yard before the rains resumed. Finally got to mow yesterday but the grass was so high I had to slow the motion of the mower to keep from straining the engine. I then used the mower to blow the clippings into piles. This morning at 3AM I got up, took my med's and a glass of water and went to work picking up the clippings and transferring them into the compost pile. Except for the lack of light since there was no moon it was perfect conditions for nude yard work.

I have been wide awake with no drugs used for the many colonoscopy session that I have had and I was able to watch the monitor screen throughout.

I've had a couple of those colon tortures.  I agree with Hymie, it's the 'preparation' laxatives that's the torture.  It's utterly shit! (In many senses :D).

Today, I was out hanging laundry in DF's backyard. I heard a crunch and turned to see a delivery guy standing on the other side of the short (chest high) fence. He asked me about an address politely. It was as if nothing was missing. He didn't even appear to notice. I just continued, gave him some directions. Both casual, I got a "Thank-you sir."

Hymie,  Are you still there?
Have you been affected by recent Louisiana storms?  If so are you OK?
