Amun-Ra : View From The Other Side

Have you ever wondered what it would feel like to have a television stuck up your butt? I never gave it much consideration either until I went in for my first colonoscopy. Having a colonoscopy is the plumbing equivalent of having a roto-rooter treatment for your intestines.

Basically, it is a procedure that checks the intestine for cancerous growths and other harmful items that could be life threatening. It has been instrumental in helping to diagnose colon cancer and helping to stop it before it spreads. That it is a good procedure no one can deny.

Still, the idea of having a four-foot long cable with a television camera on it stuck up your hindquarters does not qualify as a fun thing to do. It will never be a ride at Disneyland or at Six Flags amusement parks.

In addition to being brutally inserted into the rectum, the device also blows air into the intestines to make them stretch so the doctor can view the entire lining of the bowel. Having air blown up your butt is like farting in reverse. It is not pleasant. Nevertheless, it is a valuable procedure.

If you have the desire, you can actually watch on television while the doctor runs the roto-rooter. Some people actually save the videotape so they can watch the thrilling procedure in the comfort of their homes any time they please. In lieu of vacation pictures what could be more thrilling than a personal screening of your friend’s latest colonoscopy?

This procedure becomes a regular occurrence once you reach a certain age. It is important that you take advantage of this technology to keep yourself healthy. My mother died of colon cancer and I wish the procedure had been available at that time. Perhaps, she would still be with me. Nevertheless, when it is time for my “routine” colonoscopy, I would rather go to the dentist.

Butt Seriously

The most effective means of combating colorectal cancer is early detection through screening. This means SEE YOUR DOCTOR. The process of screening should begin no later than the age of 35 for men and women. A diet high in fiber and low in fat combined with exercise has also been shown to be effective in combating this disease.

All too often, many in the African American community wait until significant symptoms arise before seeking medical advice. This is one of the main reasons why survival is less.

Roto-Rooter, what a hoot!

You have a wonderful sense of humor. I love the unique way you delivered this very serious topic. Your description of the colonoscopy precedure was totally hilarious.

You are very correct when you said early detection can combat colon cancer. There are many medical precedures that can raise the survival rate of many cancers. My opinion is many people are afraid of the uncomfortableness and degrading positions involved with these precedures and the scary diagnosis they may render, so they refuse to have them preformed.
I have two very sad cases of women who ignored the warnings of how important having yearly vaginal examines(pap smear/test) A co-worker(NURSE) waited until it was too late to have this done. It was 10 yrs since her last vaginal examine. She is 39 yrs old and was told she had only six months left to live after being diagnose with cervical cancer, which I might add is a very horrible type of cancer.
Also a very close friend who lost 2 aunts from breast cancer, still she refuses and ignores the importance of having a mammogram. She is in the medical profession and has witnessed people who have died from these diseases that can be often successfully treated, if detected in their early stages.

Yes, many of these precedures are most often uncomfortable, even degrading. However, they only last for what will seem like minutes compared to what may seem like years, when dying from a very painful illness.

I've been reading your column for the past week. Though I haven't replied any until now, I did enjoy the reading. Your great sense of humor and pleasant personality explodes in your column. You need to go live:) I will be visiting more often.

An Ounce of Prevention

Thanks for stopping past--it seems that we are afraid to look for what we might find and when we decide to look--it is too late--these tests are performed everywhere and they can be had for free--As the number three killer of black men, I think it is important to do something about it.

Good news; NRA filed for bankruptcy.
Bad news; Police often kill mentally and handicapped people.
I despise these racist killing NYPD. I'm glad Attorney General Letitia James filed a law suit against NYPD for using "excessive, brutal and unlawful force" against Black Lives Matter protesters! The law suit also targets the Mayor, police commissioner Dermot Shea and Chief of Department, Terry Monahan! Several NYPD cops have been suspended, along with many other racist violent killer cops across this nation.
Will the 3 white GOPs in Congress, Gosar, Biggs and Brooks, be charged with sedition and felony murder for inciting and helping Ali Alexander plan the insurrection? Ali Alexander, black trump supporter who started Stop The Steal and organized the insurrection, threw these 3 white terrorists under the bus. All of them should get long prison sentences. Alexander, a convicted felony, will likely be charged first.
2 things to share;
a. 33 more days to go before I hit 200 straight days of exercise.
b. Pls visit orangeseahorse . com. Not selling anything! It's a free site to post true short stories, poems, etc. Also free to read. We have 500,000 views and some writers have been published. These true short stories are poignant and life changing. Thanks,
Why aren't the white domestic terrorists charged w/felony murder and terrorism? YES, I answered my own question with the phrase 'white domestic terrorist'. But let's see if black traitor "Ali Alexander" will be charged w/felony murder for helping organize the deadly insurrection. His white comrades will blame him for influencing them to commit violence. His butt will be tattered after they throw him under the bus.
