Cancer: Colon Message Board


Cancer: Colon Board Index


I am a 57 yr. male with Type II diabetes. I see my doctor regularly for a chk up and to keep tabs on the diabetes, which at present is diet controled. At my last visit, Sept. 2002, he revisited the issue of having a colon exam using the flexible sigmoidscope(??). Previously, I had told him about my older brother, 3 yrs. olderthan me, having a similar exam in which numerous polops were found.

My concern is what to expect from this procedure. The doctor has fairly well explained what is done but I am wondering about any adverse side effects.

Any thoughts from others would be appreciated.
