Actually it's crack up. I'll never forget my first colonoscopy. I scheduled a double whammy; an endoscopy which is a tube going down your throat, and a colonoscope enters through another orifice. I was looking forward to a nice restful sleep during both procedures, but it didn't go exactly as planned.
After the nurses started my IV, I thought I would instantly pass out. Instead, I was advised to view the monitor on my left, while the gastroenterologist went to work. Suddenly, I was watching a movie and my colon was the star. I usually enjoy eating popcorn at the movies, but thought it best not to ask. The doctor decided to give me the colonoscopy first, and I was hardly in a position to argue.
The doctor discovered a very large polyp, but I was extremely lucky that it was detected early before it would become cancerous. Afterward, the doctor handed me a picture ; a souvenir of a journey through my colon. This experience sounds like a great idea for a ride at Epcot Center, only this ride may have saved my life.
