- good to read all is OK...
- just went through the half-century checkup routine, and am also on the road to a lighter 'frame'...
- btw, for male 50+s here:
if you haven't had one yet, get a colonoscopy... if the doc finds any questionable polyps, they can usually be removed on the spot - saving you a revisit or much grief further down the road...
- i actually had fun during mine... after being prepped on the gurney and wheeled into the exam room, i found two nurses pinching each other and playing graba**... my doc was sitting at a desk, finishing a Happy Meal™ and reading the sports page of the local fishwrap... one nurse turns to the other and says, "Hey, he looks like a Frenchie! Let's take his picture!" She grabs the business end of the scope, flicks a switch to light the two high-power LEDs, nearly sticks it up my nose, then snaps a few pictures... I ask, "Promise you won't upload those to the Internet?" "No problem, sweetie," she says, fitting the nasal mask over my face, then adds, "Count to three."
i think i got to 'Two' ... an hour and a half later i wake up in a recovery room feeling pretty good, but not remembering a darn thing about the exam...
p.s. also glad to read that the numbness has disappeared/abated... bike fit is key!
