    Colonoscopy vs Cystoscopy

    I've had two colonoscopies and over a dozen cystoscopies, and there is a big difference and it's not just the spelling.

    A colonoscopy has a prep the day before and you pretty much sleep through the whole procedure.

    A cystoscopy has no previous prep, totally takes no more than 10 minutes, and it's a hum dinger of an eye opener.

    So's a catheter, both inserting and removal!
    Why doesn't the word 'planing' show up in my computer spell check?

    I had a catheter for a week after each of the first two cystoscopies, as they were surgical, not just exploratory. When I went out to the store, it was great cause I could pee while waiting in the checkout line.

    Ha ha, nice. My wife has had to endure a bunch of sigmoidoscopy, another eye opener.

    Maybe I should have said ..."without standing in it".
