If you could slow down an action that usually zooms by, or speed up an event that normally drags on, which would you choose, and why?
“Colonoscopy is a test that allows your doctor to look at the inner lining of your large intestine camera.gif (rectum and colon). He or she uses a thin, flexible tube called a colonoscope to look at the colon. A colonoscopy helps find ulcers, colon polyps, tumors, and areas of inflammation or bleeding. During a colonoscopy, tissue samples can be collected (biopsy) and abnormal growths can be taken out. Colonoscopy can also be used as a screening test to check for cancer or precancerous growths in the colon or rectum (polyps).”
I would ‘speed up’ the clean out time before having a colonoscopy by about 98%. With all the new technology today in cameras. The clean out neccesary for a colonoscopy should not have to be so vigerous. Anyone who has ever drunk a gallon jug full of Epsom Salts water or whatever laxative it is preparing for their colonoscopy will tell you. It borders on torture, scenes from dark dungeons, it is inhumane treatment. No human body should have to endure it. I have sat on the toilet drinking my gallon of juice most of one night. It is an experience that you will never forget. There has to be a newer, better product that can be used, without having to drink a gallon of liquid. One 8oz glass every hour until you want to puke!
This is a problem that should be taken very serious, many people will take the option of not having a colonoscopy done just because of the sheer torture that is involved in getting yourself cleaned out, squeaky clean from top to bottom. Many of these people who make the decision not to have the colonoscopy will end up with cancer killing them. That is a complete waste of life. Colonoscopy cleanout requirements must be change by a better cleanout agent. Newer and better camera equipment could take pictures through some poop, if the large intestine and colon are not spotless. Many lives will be saved if this becomes a part of our new break throughs in modern medecine.
Speed up the colonoscopy clean out time, slow down the trip to Mars by an hour.
