When I get my annual DRE, my friendly urologist usually comments that there's little to worry about as long as I don't feel both his hands on my shoulders.

Fortunately, he's a mild case, and can't hold a candle to my dentist, who has to be one of the world's corniest (and most prolific) joke tellers.

DH's colonoscopy report came back and it was good news. He won't have to have another one until 2016.

Total cost of colonoscopy....$4800. Fortunately with our insurance we didn't have to pay a dime. I can't even imagine how much the entire bill will be for his PC treatment.

It's always good when the doc posts a positive trip report!

After mine I even persuaded my doc to write a note to DW that "No, his head is not in there after all...."

Happy to hear everything is going well!
