I'm 55 yrs old and never had a colonoscpy yet is there an easier test to take the preparation the day before scares me.

What are you asking?: Are you asking for an alternative colon screening modality--there are several (fecal dna testing, ct colonography, air contrast barium enema plus sigmoidoscopy, etc.). Any look at the colon will however require a preparation, but the only colon test that permits therapeutics through the entire colon (e.g. Removal of detected polyps) rather than just a diagnostic look, is in fact a colonoscopy. ...Read more

Is there anything I should be doing right now to assist me in preparation for dialysis when the time comes? (the do's and don't s). Thank you.

Yes: If you have renal insufficiency ("pre-dialysis" kidney disease) you should consider getting a fistula placed. Since you have some klidney function you are a better surgical candidate, will heal better, and can get a native vein fistula (the best kind).

So why does there seem to be more fuss about colonoscopies vs upper? Is it more to do with the preparation required and the chance of incomplete exam?

So why does there seem to be more fuss about colonoscopies vs upper? Is it more to do with the preparation required and the chance of incomplete exam?

Colonoscopy.: Not sure what you mean by "fuss, " but it is true that preparing your colon for a colonoscopy is more difficult than just not eating after midnight to prepare for an upper endoscopy. However, if you take the preparation properly, more than 90% of colonoscopies are completed without difficulty. Just follow the instructions that your doctor gives you and it should go well. Good luck. ...Read more
