I wont post anymore until I get the results of the colonoscopy. If it is bad, I would hope to continue to post as this is a great resource. Thanks everyone for the help so far.

physician who prescribed that and have the dosage tweaked.

Give Dr Google a rest (and this forum) and get some solid belly laughs behind you and dial the anxiety back a
notch or two.
If you can, move to Nevada.
