Survival Guide That dreaded doctor visit is not fun—but reading this prep manual by award-winning humorist Mary Kay Jordan Fleming is. The Silver Lining. By 7:30 AM I was checked in for my colonoscopy, lying in a hospital bed while various nurses, techs, and doctors came in to ask me questions and tend to my every concern.

They brought me hospital blankets straight from a warmer and I found a strange peace while lying there. The Silver Lining to Getting a Colonoscopy Is Reading This No B.S. Survival Guide That dreaded doctor visit is not fun—but reading this prep manual by award-winning humorist Mary Kay Jordan Fleming is. For example, if everything appears normal and no biopsies are taken, the doctor can tell you right away that the colonoscopy was normal.

If a polyp is removed or a sample of the colon lining is removed (a colonic biopsy), it may take a few days (or more) to find out that cancer, an adenoma or another finding was discovered. Colonoscopy is a procedure that utilizes a flexible tube with light and camera at the end to look at the inner lining of a person’s large intestine (colon) through a video monitor. During the procedure, the physician has the ability to take a small piece of tissue from the colon (biopsy), remove a polyp (polypectomy), mark a specific spot. Colon Cancer Alliance: “Sample Six-Day Colonoscopy Prep Guide.” Harvard Medical School Harvard Health Publications: “Preparing for a colonoscopy.” Johnson, D., September 2014. Colonoscopy is a great medical advance, no doubt.

Most colon cancers start out as small growths (polyps) in the lining of the colon that go through subtle changes over the course of several years. Most colon polyps are adenomas, and the vast majority—about 90%—are completely harmless. But because it’s usually not possible to tell.

  • Omg this just turned up in my recommended… How did you know I’m currently waiting for my appointment for this lovely procedure ��…. Thanks for the reminder! ����… ���� 1 like is 1 prayer for my bum!! ����

  • I stopped the video at 31 minutes to ask this question.
    Most colonoscopies also include removing any polyps that are found.
    Many doctors will tell you that they prefer the colonoscopy over the flexible sigmoid, because the flexible sigmoid does not allow them to see what they need to see. But, I am not sure if that is true.
    If you do a 5 minute flexible sigmoid and then find a polyp, would you return to have the polyp removed or….how would the polyps be treated?
    Thank you.

  • Wow, thank you so much, I am being pressured to take this test and my gut instinct is full of distrust and I am sooooooooooooooooo happy and grateful I found you!!! Thank you for your bravery, courage and honesty.. So refreshing!!

  • Self education is your best option. If one chooses to remain ignorant about health matters it’s more likely that they will be exploited by doctors.

  • I’m 17 and on a Whole food plant based diet for a year. No salt no oil. And I have bloated ness and constipation for over four months. Should I have a sigmoid or a colonoscopy?

  • The information about No European country recommends colonoscopy seems to be old, because it is used now. I live in Denmark and it is highly recommended. I had it twice, but I really regret having taken it.

  • Silly title, but I guess it catches peoples attention. Love Dr McDougall and the whole food plant based community of doctors and practitioners.

  • So I got vegan shamed by my family tonight. It’s difficult eating with others especially when you’re underweight, I’ve been too sick for too long, I found dr. McDougalls webinars and I’m watching them all, just finished watching many dr. Klaper videos, love them both, helped me get through tonight, my mom died suddenly from a heart attack a year ago, I don’t want to be next, I have a 19 year old daughter and I’m the only parent she’s ever had. Why does this truth have to be searched for, everyone should know this, doctors should share this, the medical system is so frustrating, I’ve spent years trying to heal myself because I’m a brain injury survivor, but it caused so much damage to my physical well being, it’s difficult and painful to walk, but food has always been my medicine, since I became an adult and was able to try and make myself better. God Bless all these doctors that care about the human race ����

  • I love this man. Of all the health Guru’s I’ve watched… he is the best.
    Thanks John. Your 90% Rice and 10% veg, cure any disease diet has changed my life, and my finances too. And your advice is FREE.
    Unfortunately Australian doctors peddle poor-health, expensive poor health.
    Thank-you for my exceptionally superior good health, which it is from eating one to three kilo of $3-per-kilo RICE.

  • My Sister died from colon cancer. If she would have had a Colonoscopy it would have been detected years ago and possibly be alive today.

  • 100 years ago, people ate everything, cancer was very rare, in fact smokers rarely died of cancer, why? Because food was good, wholesome, clean no drugs, no pesticides, hormones, animals were raised very well. These were no vaccination, tobacco was real, no poison added, tribes smoke for thousands of years! We grew up on farms, THE ANIMALS ATE IN THE FIELDS,,CHICKENGS, DUCK,COWS, DONKEYS, RABBITS,VEGETABLES WERE EVERYWHERE! FRUITS WERE PLENTY! MADE THE FIOUR, THE CAKES AND PUDDINGS!NO ONE WAS SICK! TODAYS FOOD IS NOT CARED FOR, ITS DESIGNED TO KEEP YOU SICK!

  • I have ate right but polyps run in my family. Don’t tell people they just need more fiber because that’s not the full story. At 25 i had symptoms and for a long time they say you can’t feel polyps but I did. My first colonoscopy they removed 8 polyps all benign but the symptoms went away. Not everyone is the same.

  • Just finished my potato dinner… Been on Dr McDougall’s Starch Solution Diet for 6 mo and my GERD is already 100percent better.. Love you Dr M!

  • Love UC-tv typically I’m into the anthropology but I’m turning 50 and my father has rectal cancer..
    Really appreciate these videos getting people informed and getting me to go get tested
    Thank you!

  • at minute 21 he says do not use colonoscopy and shows euro / canadian governments with same opinion = WOW! where i live ive spoken to tens of people whose drs constantly call for them. this is very surprising.

  • If I remember correctly, Dr. M. Greger, has reported that studies show colonoscopy is unnecessary as well! I love that there are those of you doctors who are reporting the truth. Thank you!

  • My stepmother has two friends whose colons were perforated during colonoscopy. I decided a couple decades ago that I won’t get it. So gad that an MD supports this choice.

  • Dr. McDougall, I had polyps removed over 20 year ago, ( I also have a sister who had colon cancer with surgery & chemo) so I have had a colonoscopy every 5 years since. After the last one I swore I would not ever do it again. For me the prep is a nightmare (not being able to make it to the bathroom in time, the discomfort involved). And I cannot have the procedure with a lot of anesthesia due to pain. Most people sleep through them, but not me.

    Considering my history do feel the test for blood in the stool is a good option for me? Thanks.

  • Dr. McDougall is one of the few medical doctors that I respect. This man knows what he is talking about. He is so well researched and I I’m so thankful to him for putting out the truth!

  • The VA wanted me to do the colnosopy procedure, but would not expain the stool test, the VA is a training hospital. I know the risks now.

  • My uncle had a stroke when he was about 90 years old. While in the hospital the Dr. says, Eric, you have blood in your stoll, Ya he says, been there for about 30 years..

  • On minute 10:40 Dr. McDougall talked about the enemy of science changing the language to fool people, that is GOLD!  The same thing happened in Vatican II where the enemy of Christ changed the language in the documents from classic Scholastic language according to St. Thomas to language used by modern philosophers (heretics like De Carte) they changed the religion.  That is why even liberals call Vatican II a “Linguistic Event”.

  • Gosh. McDougall’s looking very old these days and the bags under his eyes becoming far more pronounced….If I were him, I’d be spending less time shooting my mouth off and more looking to improve my health…Probably starting with getting onto a better diet….The ‘high-carb mob’ would appear to be winning the ‘diet wars’ as far as Obesity’s concerned…Trouble is they look like death warmed up.

  • Nearly bled to death!!! My other half had one done. They cut 10 polyps out and sent her home. Long story short she ended up back in the emergency room 3 times. She nearly bled to death twice. Was even non-responsive for 1 and a half hours. They had to give her 3 units of blood. She was sent to intensive care where she was experiencing other issues due to the blood loss. They eventually decided to go in for a 3rd colonoscopy and put clamps where the 10 polyps were. That appeared to solve the problem. Her and I both say, NEVER AGAIN!!! I’m on a VA trial program testing for colorectal issues by sending in fecal samples once a year. I believe it’s function is to compare, Sample vs Colonoscopy when it comes to saving lives. I say, 1st line of defense, eat better.
