Being infertial, you learn to deal with having a ton of people between your legs... your privacy goes out the door-quickly!  So when it's time for my yearly exam, meh, not really a big deal.  The fact that I only go to my doctor yearly now, instead of weekly (or more then that if we were monitoring folicals!) is great.

But I have another yearly exam I have to do.  Several years ago, after an emergency surgery, they discovered that I had several polyps in my colon.  These polyps are always pre-cancerous, and it was alarming that I had several because I was only 24 (at the time).

My doctor in Kansas City just wanted to see me every two years as follow up, so I had my follow up last summer.  However, my current local doctor would like to see me yearly.... so like now.... blah!

They knock me out, so it's not that big of a deal, but the prep is horrible! :)

The nurse called me today to make sure I was still local, and said she would get started on the insurance side of it.  Last year, they called me on a Monday and asked if I could do it Thursday, so I suspect that this year will be similar.  Within the next few weeks I'll go in for my yearly check up....

I can't wait....


  1. Ugh. Good luck!!!

    As I recall, getting the expensive TP does make a difference in the end. (sorry, couldn't help myself with that.)

  2. Yuck! I'm kinda in the same boat. I need to get one soon...need to talk to my PCM about that. Thanks for the reminder:)

  3. Bah...no fun. Hope all goes well for you.

  4. No fun!!!! I hope all goes well.

  5. I've heard that the prep is the worst part. Good luck and I hope everything turns out fine. Keep us posted.

  6. I know it sucks, but I'm proud of you for keeping up with it. I'm bit of a colon.oscopy vigilante. :) My mom's mom died of colon cancer when I was 2, so our family is fairly well on top of this too. I think I have 6 more years until it's my turn for the tests. Thinking of you!

  7. I dread going, but I know its important...so I just have a bottle of wine chilling in the fridge on those appointment days.
    Will be sending you virtual hugs!

  8. I'm sorry, I've been there. The prep is definitely the worst part. Best of luck!

  9. Oh gosh....been there done that! It is no fun at all!
    Definitely keep it up though...please!

  10. I hope all goes well for you and that it's over quickly.

    Take care,
