Yeah. Got the booster a while back. Still hurt, not as bad. Don't make plans for the day after.
 

Hmmm. I got the first shot in September and the second in December. Both at my primary doc. Other than a sore upper arm, I did not feel bad at all. Other people I know who got the shots  had similar experiences to yours.  Now I am wondering if the shots I got were somehow defective!
 

I don't know, but the person sticking me did say that the nasty reaction means it's working. That doesn't mean no reaction=not working, but it might be worth investigating.

Preventative screening... do it!

Yesterday was my first colonoscopy. Oh joy. But here's the thing: as much as it was inconvenient and unpleasant, it was NOTHING compared to colon cancer!
Which applies to pretty much any medical screening procedure. Sure, it sucks rocks. But the alternative is usually much, much worse.

We can debate the efficacy of flu shots and the like, but finding something that's actually wrong (or could go wrong) is a different matter. One of those polyps could be pre-cancerous: do you really want to take that chance?

Funny thing, my new GP, who insisted on the test, STILL hasn't had it done himself! No one is immune to the hassle- and ick-factors. But the hassle and ick will seem like a picnic if God forbid there is something serious going on.

Many health care plans cover it 100% (preventative) but there's usually a charge if they find something (diagnostic).

Plus the stuff they use now, Propofol, works really fast (10-15 seconds) and wears off quickly (less than an hour?)

Bite the bullet, drink the horrid stuff, get checked. The life you save could be your own...

yeah my first run was at like 7 am and it was great

boom never knew what hit me

second one was early afternoon

never again

because timing



edit:  there are narrated tours of the colon on youtube if someone is interested

They have a new, much more effective shingles vaccine out now. Our church decided to pay for anyone who thinks they want it (in the church or not) out at the public health annex. They ran out, but put me on a waiting list and a few days ago, they called and said they had some. I went in Friday morning before going out to sightsee with haresfur! While I was there waiting, Justine had me ask if it was recommended for her because she'd had a mild case a while ago etc. and they said yes and they looked and had enough doses to give her one too. So we both got a shot of it. When I was in with the nurse, she says, "So! Got any big plans this weekend?" Ooh, chatty. Okay. "Not really, just work stuff." She says "well you might want to call in sick because this will leave you feeling puny for a day or two."

Puny. Isn't that, like, queasy? A little under the weather, lethargic, yeah? No, sorry, we made it thru the day being active, but about 8 or 9 hours after getting the shots, started to ache and were running a fever. By midnight, we were both complaining that it felt like we'd been hit by a car. Holy crap it hurt. I took a double dose of naprosyn about 2 a.m. and finally got to sleep for a while but I had to get up and go to the zipline and greet customers. 

So, anyway. Have to get a booster shot in 3 months. I'll plan ahead next time, boy.

Yeah, she says the box test is only good for three years, whereas the scope is good for five. So far it's always been negative, so...

 
Scope is good for five IF they don't find anything. If they remove any polyps, it's three. Guh.

So far my internist is satisfied with the poop-in-a-box kit every three years - and so am I.

Yep. Three months ago (today!) I got the first one at my pharmacy. My pharmacist didn’t even recommend I take any pain meds. The next day I called in to work, and slept for 12 hours. AND took pain meds! I also need to plan ahead this time.
