On Health, Colonoscopies, and Anniversaries.

Yesterday was the third anniversary of the colonoscopy that found the sigmoid colon cancer that I have. It saved my life. In some ways I can’t believe that it’s been so long. In other ways it’s been the longest three years of my life.

And I know I say this a lot but talk to your doctor about when you should start your own screening, as young as 45 but often lower if you have symptoms or family history. Colonoscopies save lives, it’s that simple.
