Well, for a lot people it's just the idea of an anal probe...but in reality the real drag is the day before...the "prep" drink (yes, salt water flavored with lemon still tastes like salt water) and pills and the quality time in the bathroom. Plus of course basically 2 days off work. In real life you have zero memory of the the probing part. One minute you are starting anesthesia and the next you are awake.Originally Posted by prhoshay;3733118;
I think part of the focus on men in people's minds migth date back to Katie Couric's husband....there was so much news about how his life might have been saved if only he'd had one that the association between men and colon cancer got formed for many. At least I hope it's that---I'd hate to think many women don't know the difference between the prostate and colon! Well, I guess you insert things in the same place to examine them.... Maybe that's also part of the confusion.
