Ryan Reynolds and his friend, Rob McElhenney shared their experience after doing colonoscopies. They recently filmed doing colonoscopies in order to emphasize the importance of keeping a healthy colon

Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney uploaded a video sharing everything about colonoscopies on YouTube on Tuesday. Similarly, they began by giving each other’s introduction.

As, Ryan and Rob both are the chairman of the Welsh football club Wrexham A.F.C. Likewise, in the video we can know about their bet. They bet last year that if Rob learned to speak Welse then Ryan will allow the camera to film during his colonoscopy.

However, McElhenney completely learned Welse’s language and he spoke fluently in the video too. So, Ryan had to share the video regarding his colonoscopy with the public.

The result of this is a lifesaver. To do the process, they partnered with the cancer awareness organization, Lead from Behind and the Colorectal Cancer Alliance.

Furthermore, Rob talked about their bet saying,

“Ryan was so sure he said he’d publicly broadcast his colonoscopy if I could do it.”

And, the fun fact is, that McElhenney was talking in Welsh while saying this statement. There were English subtitles for easy understanding.

Additionally, in the video, Ryan claimed that he and his friend turned 45 years recently so they are eligible to do a colonoscopy. Moreover, he also added,

“It’s a simple step that could literally, and I mean literally, save your life.”

Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney then shared another clip from the hospital. In addition, the whole process lasted for 30 minutes and at first, Ryan did his first colonoscopy. While doing it, the doctors removed an “extremely subtle polyp” on the right side of his colon.

On the other hand, the doctor also stated,

“This was potentially life-saving for you — I’m not kidding, I’m not being overly dramatic. This is exactly why you do this. You had no symptoms.”

Meanwhile, the doctor also showed Ryan’s san pictures by saying,

“You are interrupting the natural history of a disease of something of a process that could have ended up developing into cancer and causing all sorts of problems.”

Also, Rob’s procedure also captured and his doctor found three polyps. Doctors said that it wasn’t a big deal because they found them early and removed them.

Apart from this, Rob and Ryan are like best buddies so jokingly McElhenney said about wanting to win against Ryan.

He said,

“I figure I can’t go wrong in terms of comparing myself to Ryan. They either find nothing and that means my colon was cleaner than his, or they find a polyp and it’s either bigger than his, which is awesome, or it’s smaller than his, which means I had less of an opportunity to have cancer — either way, I win.”

Though, the American Cancer Society stated colorectal cancer and how dangerous is that. They claimed that colorectal cancer is the third leading cause of cancer-causing death in men or women. Likewise, it is the third most cancer diagnosed besides skin cancer.

Lead from Behind also stated that colonoscopies are used to detect cancer and prevent it as well.

The organization was first discovered by Brooks Bell who also survived colon cancer’s third stage at the age of 38 years. Although, Brooks also explained,

“I’m a trend, not a tragedy. Polyps usually have no symptoms. A colonoscopy will find them, and snip them out on the spot, preventing cancer down the road! After I was diagnosed, my 35 year old sister got her first colonoscopy and they found and removed a large polyp. It may have saved her life.”

However, the American Cancer Society said that the rate of colon cancer is decreased nowadays. The reason for this is early treatment and colonoscopy.
