Glad the results were good, Luke. It's worth putting up with the prep to get that peace of mind that a clean report gives you.

I once had a combined upper endoscopy/colonoscopy. Two procedures, one prep. Nice.

That cologuard seems like a scam... Why should I pay someone to poop in a box?

An digital exam or a biopsy? I've had exams during normal office visits or physicals and there wasn't any prep. A biopsy is basically the same process as an exam, they just use needles instead of fingers.

Had the digital exam.
Doc said it all felt normal.
Had to do the blood test again. Still elevated.
Now I have to have an MRI to see if they can see any issues.
