I guess I am older than you all and that is the very reason I have the colonscopies. After 50 you are supposed to get one. Iwaited till 65 and now have them every 2 years and they always find some polyps. I figured if I only at 3 from birth to 65 that I could go a long time without anymore but it doesn't seem to work that way as we age. Last time I had 5 and I have freinds that have 10 and 12 every couple years.
