Rob & Ryan Lead From Behind

  • I made a bet. I lost. But it still paid off. leadfrombehind.org/
    LEAD FROM BEHIND is on a mission to make colon cancer famous.
    We're raising awareness that is The Preventable Cancer.
    ► Colon cancer is the second biggest cancer killer in America. 1 in 24 Americans gets colon cancer. It doesn’t need to be - because it’s preventable.
    ► The best way to prevent colon cancer is by getting a colonoscopy when you turn 45. The guidelines changed in 2021 lowering the age from 50 to 45.
    ► People don’t want to talk about colonoscopies, let alone get one. We’re using humor and heart to change that.
    ► Colon cancer is rising in young people - predicted to be the top cancer killer for people under 50 by 2030.
    LEAD FROM BEHIND is founded by Brooks Bell, powered by @colorectalcanceralliance, and created in partnership with Maximum Effort & Chrysi Philalithes.

      @Chicago0048 I don't know what the rules are there for screening less than 5 years apart but in Canada if you have had a parent or sibling that had colon cancer or died from it you are screened every 3 years. Maybe there is a caveat with your insurance company like that as well?

    Had a few symptoms. A colonoscopy in July revealed a nasty tumor. I have Stage 3 Rectal Cancer. I’m 50, a nonsmoker, eat healthy. I’m currently in the middle of chemo radiation treatment, which is not a walk in the park. Take it from a colorectal cancer patient, schedule your colonoscopy now. If I had one at age 45, things would have looked a lot different for me. Thanks, Ryan and Rob, for helping inform others about the new 45 age recommendation for a colonoscopy.

      Cancer doesn't discriminate. My Dad passed away from colon cancer so my family doctor put me on a regular colonoscopy examination schedule since my early 40s.
      Prep is a pain in ass, literally, but it's worth it.
      Wishing you a speedy recovery. Keeping a positive outlook is important in beating the disease.
      Take care.

    I had my first routine colonoscopy earlier this year.
    They found stage two Cancer.
    I had an operation a couple of weeks later, and spent the summer recovering. I am now Cancer free.
    If I had not decided to have this simple procedure, the Cancer would have killed me before I could have seen my daughters grow up. And they would have lost their father.
    This procedure saves lives.

      Ok, without going into specifics.
      I went to my GP (family doctor) with something minor like a bad cold or something, don't really remember. As an aside he saw that I hadn't had a blood test for a few years and wanted to do one just to check on my general well-being. I went along with it cause I trust his judgement.
      The blood test showed an anomaly. He prescribed treatment (over the counter pills) that fixed the symptom. He wanted, however, to find the cause for the anomaly so he recommended I have a colonoscopy and a gastroscopy, which he called routine even though I was only 42 at the time.
      Now, all this took a little less than a year, from when I had my first visit with the minor thing until the day I went for the colonoscopy. That was because I postponed a lot of the steps I took. There were even numerous times that I almost decided to ignore his advice.
      Now as to symptoms. After recovering from the surgery I started to notice really subtle changes in my health and well-being. I now see that I did have symptoms but they were so subtle and insignificant that I really didn't notice some, and explained other as symptoms of other things that were going on in my life.

      Until a couple of years ago, the recommended age was 50 for the first one (every ten years after that if nothing was spotted), but since so many young people were being diagnosed with and dying from colorectal cancer, the ACS changed the recommendation to 45.

      The prep was horrible, so much so that I cried when I had to slug the second dose of it. I also had issues when I woke up. It took four hours to do the procedure because of an undiagnosed hernia, and when I regained consciousness, I had enough nausea and pain to light up a mid-sized city. But I will do it again in three years because they did find some polyps.

    When I was 32 years old, I had very slight blood in my stool, just once. My doctor immediately got me to do 3 seperate stool samples. The first 2 were clear, but the 3rd showed occult blood. I had a colonoscopy a few weeks later and a precancerous polyp was removed. My doctor literally saved my life. She easily could have said I'm too young or that I didn't fit in some kind of "box" that would warrant further investigation. I'm from Australia and all I know, is that an at home stool sample kit is sent to you when you turn 50. I think this is fantastic advertising for such an important issue. Well done Ryan and Rob.

    This is an amazing video, I am living proof that that colonoscopy saves lives. I had my first one this may at 47 (I delayed it because of COVID). The doctors removed a 45mm polyp (no that is not a typo..) from my colon. The pathology showed that this was one huge ball of cancer... but the bad stuff didn't go down the stem to the bowel wall and the margins were clean, meaning once he removed the polyp, I was cancer free.. The worst part of the whole this is the prep, but the procedure is easy.. I can not stress enough if you are of age or have colorectal cancer in your family history, consult a physician and schedule it NOW!!!! #LeadFromBehind

    Ryan, thank you for putting out this message. I was 43, so too young to be screened, but I started feeling unwell and stopped having bowel movements. Six weeks later I was having emergency surgery as a tumor had completely blocked my bowel. I was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer. Thankfully I had no metastases, but the lining inside my abdomen tested positive. Had a great surgeon...he left me with a double-barrel colostomy, but he intentionally did it in a way so that it could be reversed later. I went through chemo and a long recovery, but survived long enough to get that colostomy reversed. I'm 55 now and considered cured, but no one else I went through chemo with survived. I have my criticisms of western medicine, but this is a fairly low risk procedure that with early detection can save your life.

    when I had my first colonoscopy many years ago I was wheeled into the operating room and the surgeon and the nurse were preparing their equipment, when I saw the length of the scope laying on the table in front of the surgeon I said "hang on a sec doc, let me stick my gum on the end of that thing and when you see me chewing it again, stop". He had no sense of humour or much of a bedside manner but the nurse doubled over in laughter.

    The prep is easier than ever now, and you get a great nap!
    Get your colonoscopy sooner rather than later. It can make all the difference.
    Kudos to Rob and Ryan for bring awareness to this topic.

    So here's my fun story of a colonoscopy: About 10 years ago I was due for the procedure, and scheduled it for a Monday morning. I went through the prep - which we all know is the worst thing about a colonoscopy - and was finally felling like I could safely get in bed around 10pm. Just as I was climbing into bed, the phone rings. Remember, this is a Sunday night around 10:30pm. It's the surgical center. They tell me they lost power during a storm that evening and would not get it back by Monday morning. I had to reschedule it two weeks later, which meant doing the prep AGAIN! Good times, good times...

My thoughts is, i hit the cancer with my car and it's crawling into a ditch to go die off. Im 35 and got it out of nowhere, none of my family members have a history of any type of cancer. So im confused as to where this one came from.

    Just turned 29 yesterday, got my first colonoscopy when I was 27 and had many polyps removed. With a family history of colon cancer I thought it was important to get in there well before 45. My father was diagnosed when he was in his mid 40s and it was caught too late. Sharing this type of information is really life saving.
    I've been struggling a lot lately with diverticulitis and it's been suggested that I have another colonoscopy next week. Everything about screening, polyps, and diverticulitis makes me more nervous than anything. Appreciate both Rob and Ryan sharing their experience, it's given me a good laugh about all this.

      @Tibor Krisko can you explain how fibre reduces colon cancer risk? Is it just fixing the gut bacteria, and good gut bacteria reduces colon cancer risk?
      I dont have butt cancer, but i did have other problems all my life, several doctors told me to eat more fibre. Some said to eat loads of fibre rich grains, 1 told me to skip those and only eat fibre rich fruits/vegs. When i finally stopped and went on a high red meat diet filled with insane amounts of animal fats, all my symptoms dissappeared. It worked the opposite of what doctors said, and 100% like the weird doctors on the internet said.
      I know ibs and colon cancer are 2 completely different things. But everything those internet doctors i follow will tell me fibre is never needed. And fibre will, in almost everyone eventually, cause severe damage

      @Ken Diet will not "prevent" but diets can reduce polyps. As a gastroenterologist and researcher, high fructose corn syrup can contribute to polyp formation. Red meats and processed meats also contribute (note, they are not a 1:1, direct causes). So yes, diet does influence colon cancer risk.

      @geson86 with all due respect, totally disagree. One of the most important things for gut health, and health of healthy gut microbes, is fiber rich foods. Minimally-processed, whole foods. Yes to avoiding excessive amounts of carbohydrates if one is struggling with obesity. And DEFINITELY avoiding simple carbs (white breads, white rice) and sugars. But high-fiber foods are rich with benefits...especially from the perspective of reducing risk of colon cancer.

      My mother discovered her diverticulitis in her late 60s when one burst. She struggled with weight gain, hernias and surgeries that made the last 15 years of her life miserable. It's very likely that starting regular colonoscopies earlier might have prevented immeasurable pain.

    Having gotten several scopes, I appreciate and can relate to the feeling when you’re in recovery. Literally laughed out loud when they were struggling to eat or talk. To everyone thinking the prep is awful and that the procedure is going to be awful, it goes by quick and you’re treated really well and you too will probably have some funny stories to tell from recovery.
    I had scopes done back in the 2000’s and the prep and procedure back then compared to now is completely different. So much better now. Get screened.

      @pepsiwepsi Hi, hope you don't mind me popping into this convo to give you my symptoms. No one in my huge amount of blood relatives, alive and passed, had colorectal cancer. I was diagnosed with stage 2 colon cancer last year at the age of 42. I started having noticeable small amounts of blood in my stool and or on toilet paper in 2017. It was every 3 to 4 months. Took the at home blood in stool test. It came back negative. I also started having diahrea, change in bowel habits. Then towards the end of 2020 I became anemic. Noticed blood about once a month and bowel movements were 4 to 6 times a day. In 2021 I couldn't leave the house because I needed to be near a toilet. Anemia was very bad. Also had gassy rumbling in rectum area, if that makes sense. Especially when waking up in morning. Also, as soon as I woke up in the morning I had to go. Finally had a colonoscopy in August 2021 and surgery in September 2021. Couple weeks before surgery I started having the ribbon like stools. If you're asking because you're having symptoms, don't wait like I did. I was very lucky that it was only stage 2 after having symptoms for so long. Colonoscopy, and switching doctors to take me and my symptoms seriously, saved my life. Talk to your doctor if you're having any symptoms or concerns.

Thanks for reminding me I should get a new screening done. Here in Sweden I have never heard of anyone getting colonoscopies without having symptoms though.. Wonder why. Both my uncle and my cousins wife died when they were around 50 from colon cancer. So sad when knowing it is preventable.

    Love that you did this! I’m 49 and had my 2nd colonoscopy abt a month ago. He found 1 polyp he could take out but another large 28 mm flat laying lesion that he couldn’t. He told me that if I hadn’t cleaned myself out well enough he would’ve missed it and told me to come back in 10 yrs but I’d have full blown cancer in 5! 😳 He said it’s def precancerous and I have to go back to have another colonoscopy w EMR (a resection) to have it removed. I’m currently recovering from a hysterectomy so I have to wait till I’m recovered so that’s going to be done in 4 weeks.
    Just a PSA for the people- the prep isn’t fun but finish it!! It’s so important to clean yourself out fully so they can see even the flat lesions that can be easily missed.
    Also, if you are actually reading this Ryan, I’m kinda mortified that I’m discussing cleaning myself out fully. 😭😂 I do love you and appreciate you guys putting yourself out there to share such an important reminder! So glad they found yours early too! ❤️
