    About 4 weeks ago I had a colonoscopy After the screening was over I was told that I had a rather large polyp growing in a area that could not be sniped . They took a small sample no cancer . They would have to remove 4 inches of my intestine .They believed that this area would turn into cancer . I home recovering after 4 days in the hospital .I should be all good in 3 weeks .        The point I would like to make is please ladies and gentlemen get this screening done I was under a lot of pressure from daughter and wife. I guess this is kinda strange being a car forum ,or maybe it does fall under exhaust

    Sounds exhausting to me. Glad you’re on the mend. I second your screening advice. Wife made me do it years ago. No problems found them but I guess I’ll get to do it again in a few years.

    My Dad went two rounds with colon cancer and survived it, so I’ve had one every three to five years since my mid-30s. Clean bill of health on the last two, so won’t have another until 2019 — if Houston traffic doesn’t kill me first. Worst part has always been the prep; you likely won’t even remember the procedure itself much past the doc telling you to count backwards from the number 10.

    The last time I had that exam, I was checked, prodded, fondled and probed like never before. It was the most thorough exam I had ever experienced. About ten seconds after the doctor left the room, the nurse came in and asked “Who was that guy?”

    We all need to pay attention to the testing & screening message!

    Thanks for the safety tip, Greg and might I add that an annual prostate exam is also in order. I lost my Dad to an aggressive form of prostate cancer and I’ve been getting checked since I was 37. Cheap insurance!

    Glad to hear that you’re doing well. By the way, in my experience, its not so much the exhaust system as it is the horn.:lol:
