Thread: Colonoscopy prep

  1. #11
    There is no indication that SCI increases your risks for bowel cancer, but it can make it difficult to detect symptoms. Not everyone with bowel cancer gets symptoms until it is advanced, but some do (constipation, blood in the stool, abdominal pain).

    Most authorities recommend that you get your first colonoscopy at age 55, but some recommend starting at 50 if you have any family history of bowel cancer. Generally they are recommended every 5 years after that, as long as the findings are normal.

    Thanks everyone! I did do my normal bowel program each day. I do it in bed, so sitting on the john is not a possibility. I guess tghere is no easy answer!!
