Poo sticks

Last week, my poo sticks arrived.

It's a test for bowel cancer; the kit includes six cardboard sticks, which you use to smear a small amount onto each of six places, two per day. It's not nice, but it's easy and it's a way to make an early diagnosis of something that would be a big problem. So I posted it off, and today I got the result.

I'm normal.

I'll get the poo sticks kit again in two years.


  1. Two per day? I'm a once-a-day No2 kind of guy. Do you have to force yourself to have a second poo?

  2. Once per day, but you have to take two samples from it.
