Since this is the subject of colonoscopy i wanna ask this here. On CBS they are doing a big thing on colon cancer and the benefits of being checked out with colonoscopy's. They say to get checked in your 40's or 10 yrs before a familywho was diagnosed with Colon cancer. Question is: My aunt is currently going through colon cancer, and I wonder with all my medical issues should I get one sooner than 40's?


If it runs in your family why not be checked?

With a family history, I'd get checked sooner than 40, especially since the immunosuprresant drugs up your risk of cancer.

Mid 30's sounds about right - a bit earlier than most because of the family history, and by then you'll have been on the transplant drugs for quite some time.

I had the MRI today to look at the mass.  What fun it was! I remembered to close my eyes before he put me in the machine and I remembered thinking geez shall I open them now.  I did for all of a second and then I shut them for the duration.  Panic would have set it.  You are nose to nose with that machine! I just told my mind to go sit on a rock and I plastered myself on a rock and relaxed. Thank God I have taught myself not to panic in medical situations.  April 17th I will have more news for you all about this episode in my life.

I decided two days ago it was not cool to go through my life scared.  So here I am.

Congratulations on getting through the procedure!  I hope all turns out well - how agonizing to have to wait so long to find out!

Me too. I finally decided that living scared over this stuff was not good for me.  So I stuck it in my worry basket and said okay.

I just made my self a worry basket in my mind and set in on a huge rock.  I use it to help me sleep and when things happen and I cannot get them out of my head. I imagine it looks like one of those old fashioned baskets with the hinged lids.  I open it up and shove my worries into it.  The funny thing is every time I open it, it is empty.

Kit, i am sure you couldnt help BUT to worry, anything that has to do with our health (especially with this damn disease) gives us reason to worry.  You know, it is sad cuz there is no one in my family who understands when i try to talk about dialysis and/or kidney failure to them but my family here at IHD,they totally know where i am coming from and how i feel, now they (and of course you too)  are MY best support group and i couldnt do it without them (or you) ;)   :2thumbsup;
