Dave Barry's Colonoscopy Certificate

Everyone’s favorite humor columnist, Dave Barry, has a great piece on Colonoscopies that a co-worker recently dug up and sent to Brevin. Too long to reproduce here, there are some highlights that I’m sure we all can relate to (especially in the case of his hospital descriptions). Since I was in the hospital 47,000 times last year, and I work as a web consultant for that hospital — I have to go to meetings there, too, eek — these are my favorite parts:

At the clinic I had to sign many forms acknowledging that I understood and totally agreed with whatever the hell the forms said. Then they led me to a room full of other colonoscopy people, where I went inside a little curtained space and took off my clothes and put on one of those hospital garments designed by sadist perverts, the kind that, when you put it on, makes you feel even more naked than when you are actually naked.

Check out the full article over at the Miami Herald where you can download and print your very own Dave Barry Colonoscopy Certificate (displayed above),  and happy 4th everyone!

    I had postphoned getting a colonoscopy due to fear of the unknown and modesty for almost two years. The thought of being sedated and allowing a physician to penetrate my anus with a tube created a great deal of anxiety for me.

    I finally went through the process by taking the recommended laxatives. The following morning, I was in the clinic to fill out the paper work and make a co-pay on the insurance. The reality of this hit me as I took off my clothes and put on a gown. There was no turning back on this.

    After waking up from the sedation, I was surprised to learn that the ordeal was over. I look foward to having my next colonoscopy and would like to hear from others about their experiences.
