Public Service message; colonoscopy

To ALL you FF's, get a colonoscopy at age 50 or sooner if you are high risk of colon cancer. This procedure can save your life, it saved mine! I waited until it almost killed me, just had it done last week @ age 54...my doctor found a large mass in the right side of my colon. The rest of the story soon. The good news is I will be ok.
F CANCER!

This past week has been crazy. I walked into Kaweah Delta hospital ER on 12-30-2013 around 10 AM. I could barely function, shortness of breath and no energy.
They hooked me up to an EKG to checkup heart, it was ok. Why was I feeling so bad? Next they took me in to a room and took some blood to test.
The blood test showed my red blood cell count was very low, 4.3, when it should be 12-16. Where did all my blood go? I was running on empty!
Next step was to add blood, a transfusion was started to add 4 units of blood.
That brought my blood count up to 9.1, much better but still low.
New Year's Eve with my blood count at a safe level the next step was to prep my bowels for the colonoscopy on New Years Day. The nurse gave me a 400 milliliter bottle of Golytle (go lightly) and said drink up! HAPPY NEW YEAR! This stuff sucks to drink but works great, I'd never been cleaner on the inside!
The next day was colonoscopy day. The discovery of a large mass in my right side colon was made. It was almost a compleat blockage and needed to be removed. Surgery was set for the next day. 1-2-2014 the surgery was performed and went perfectly. My surgeon said my liver and kidney looked beautiful. Skip ahead to today I'm feeing great and ready to go home. The stay here at Kaweah Delta has been fantastic, the staff of nurses and doctors here are as good as it gets, top notch care here! I'll be following up with my Onocoligist to go over the pathology report as soon as he gets it. I might need chemotherapy, 30% chance I won't need it...

Good to hear you are ok and doing well. Hopefully your luck will continue and side step the need for chemo.

I've had a few since the Grinch (aptly named Peter) blew my ass out on my 50th birthday ride. He was too drunk to remember... but I'll never ride (or walk) the same again.

All joking aside... butt health is serious... get checked !

Get well fast Perry!

Well, DV is unlikely but yeah, you fuckers are not rid of me yet....
I'll be back soon in fighting condition, I've been sick for the last six months, I can't believe I was out riding at all in that condition....
I'm getting cross fit and in shape to ride, that's the goal.
I will be at WARPED.
