I'm expecting my first present in the post any time soon  :thumbsup:.

Of course - I managed to get a bonus Sigmoidoscopy when I was 55, so the NHS' interest in my bum started early.

I got a sigmoidoscopy at 55. They found and removed a polyp.
They followed this with a colonoscopy and gave me the all clear.

Poo sticks in 2018 were clear.

Expect more around next birthday...i

Once you are on their list, you are always on. I ride the black lizard once very year or two years, but I still get sent the birthday present packages. I phone up and say that I don't need them.

I've just had a letter..........   They want to shove a camera up my bottom  :jurek:       


I suspect that given the upcoming workload on the NHS routine stuff like this may be sidelined & staff deployed elsewhere.

I didn't get a test kit when I turned 50 or in the two years since...  but I've had three sigmoidoscopies.

I thought they only sent poo sticks at 60 and did sigmoidoscopy at 55.

I just tell them I don’t need the poo sticks on account of sitting on mount Olympus at least once every two years. I have to remind the poo sticks people every time.

I'm supposed to have them every two years because of a history of bowel cancer and Crohn's Disease.  Seemed to get them regularly for some years but then, when we moved to Cambridge, I got them for a couple of years and then it became more intermittent and nothing in the last few years.  GP practice gets reminded regularly but still can't get it's act together.
