I was watching the Monday Night comedy shows, and this ad made say WTF!


Is US Health so terrible that some people might resort to entering a contest in order to get one of the most vital examinations for older people? Then again last year Lysol or something was offering free checkups for children when you buy their products...

just from the tone of the commercial it sounds like a joke to me. i mean im sure a colonoscopy is included in the prize, but i think its a light-hearted contest.

if you want to discuss the state of us health care, this commericial really isnt a good vaulting point.

I don't know, it's a little too early for April Fools. And why would CBS do that? Unless it's some kind of CSI/NCIS/Num13ers schtick.

april fools? why would this have anything to do with april fools? its obviously a contest intended to make you laugh. the real prize is the trip to new york, though im sure theyll throw in the colonoscopy as well.

It might actually be more of an "awareness" contest. I mean, how many people actually know what a colonoscopy is, let alone get them when they should?

Runner's up get a free prostate exam.




......anyone who's ever had one would rather take the mystery box. I had to get one for my flight physical (and I'm only 23). I thought I was going to say something humorous as it was happening....but no, when a 40 yr old man has his finger up your ass there's nothing to say.

Luckily they're saying that within a few years they won't have to do an anal probe to check the colon... Thank god!

That sucks. Do you think they'll keep the anal probes around for those that like them?

Unfortunately, if you see a polyp, you still have to biopsy it with a real colonoscope... Can't do that virtually...

...It's ironic, that I recommend colonoscopies to my patients... but it'll be a cold day in hell before I let some gastroenterologist stick a scope up my ass... :D ... I'll take my chances and stick to fecal occult blood testing when I'm older...

Yeah, they give you enough Versed, so it's actually not that bad... I just don't trust other doctors all that much... ;)

Plus, with no family h/o colon cancer, I still have ~25 years to think about it...

I was awake for mine, which was about 10+ years ago. Now, I have heard they knock you out for it. It was one of the weirdest experiences I've ever had in my life.

The initial feeling of the scope going up there is just........:-#

It feels like you're going to evacuate the whole time and you have to stop the urge to jump off the table and scramble to find a bathroom.

Of course, nothing was better than the fact that they had me lying on my side and facing the monitor, so I got to see a tour of the inside of my colon.

It was actually quite fascinating and I would've probably enjoyed it more had it not been for that feeling of needing to take a massive one throughout.

Sorry for being so graphic, but pretty much that's the experience in a nutshell.
