Don’t die of embarrassment

Post by redroque »

In the post over Christmas from NHS

‘We’d like to invite you for a bowel cancer screening’
.........well this can’t be good I think and read on nervously. A simple procedure involving a camera and arse and gas. Nothing to worry about - in the event of a nick in the bowel, remedial treatment happens straight away and nearly all patients make a full recovery!!!! Nearly.
In amongst the concern I have a nagging memory of the funniest thread ever - ref exlax.
The follow up telling me what to do only happens 2 weeks before the thing so can’t be sure - I just have to let them know if I’m turning up!
Obviously run away and bury head in sand is the way to go but bbc journo Jeremy Bowen said when diagnosed with bowel cancer - get the test- don’t die of embarrassment’. One of the best positive comments that I have ever heard about such tests. So I will be going! And the reason for this post - we are all of a certain age :D
3 potential outcomes to look forward to:
All good
Chemo
Quick but painful death
I’m in early feb so hopefully will keep you posted.
I’ve put any health improvements on hold til then!
All this and we’re buying a new motorhome on Thursday!

Good luck Max, and good man for talking about it.
I’ve not had the camera up yer jacksy procedure yet, but had the camera down yer knob procedure to look at my bladder.

Very embarrassing, and an all female team, which was worse! But thankfully all clear.

Thanks. I reckon all female is worse! You, young man, have the nasties of middle age to come! They never warn you of this stuff. It is here to help but would be nicer if less...er..invasive! As swmbo pointed out - I would be no good as a woman - smear tests are just as important but happen regularly from a younger age so 'stop wingeing' It's a fair point! :D

Haha! Sounds like the classic porn movie, alone with female nurses, requesting that you get yer todger out.
However, knowing what was about to happen was not how the movie in my head would have played out!
Unless you’re into pain and humiliation of course 😂
Glad I went through with it though, as I am a classic “ignore it and it’ll go away” fella when it comes to health.
I actually had to ask the doctor once to examine my nuts as I was too afraid too. Ffs
As Max said females tend to have intimate examinations earlier on and probably talk about it more.

Go for it! I had this check a couple of years ago and it was an absolute breeze.

Don't forget these people are probably doing around 20 a day, they really couldn't be arsed about your arse (so to speak...!) 🙂

You know it makes sense and you'll justifiably feel immensely smug afterwards.

When they offer you the sedative Max I'd recommend taking it. Not for the discomfort. I was 'off my tits' with bonhomie and didn't give a damn....
