But here’s the deal: even though a colonoscopy may get listed on the “Top Things I Don’t Want To Do” list, it is an essential part of maintaining your overall health and wellness, especially if you are approaching 50 years of age and older.There are a lot of reasons that people might avoid a colonoscopy: embarrassment, fear, stigma, lack of information, and more. But the best way to overcome most of these barriers is to be informed and know what to expect.Let us walk you through what you’ll likely experience before, during and after your colonoscopy.BeforeYour doctor gives you specific instructions on how to prepare for a colonoscopy, which are important to read carefully and follow. These instructions will likely include information about:How to take a laxative or drink a special fluid to help clean out your colonRestrictions on eating or drinking anything after midnight on the day of your screeningMaking transportation/caregiver arrangements to return home after your outpatient procedureDuringAfter you arrive at the hospital and it’s time for your exam:You will be asked to remove any jewelry or other objects that might get in the way during the procedureYou will likely be asked to remove your clothing and given a gown to wear.You will be given relaxing (sedating) medicine through an IV line. You may be drowsy or fully asleep.You will usually be asked to lie on your left side with your knees pulled up towards your chest.Air may be injected into your bowel during the procedure. This makes it easier to see the inside surfaces. A gentle water jet may also be used to clean the lining of your colon, and a suction device may be used to remove any liquid stool.The doctor will check your colon and may take photos. If a polyp is seen, it may be removed, or, if it’s larger, it may be left until another procedure can be scheduled.AfterThe colonoscopy procedure usually takes 30 minutes. Once your procedure is finished:You will be taken to the recovery room to be monitored. Your recovery process will depend on the type of sedative you received.Once your blood pressure, pulse and breathing are stable and you are awake and alert, you will be released to go home.Your doctor may discuss the results of your exam right away, or a follow-up visit may be required.After you’re discharged, your caregiver will drive you home.At HomeOnce you are home, there are a few things to consider:You may have gas right after the test. Please know that this is normal. Walking and moving about may help to ease any mild gas pain.You can usually eat whatever you feel you can tolerate after the procedure. Some people find it helpful to start with small, bland meals.You should not drink alcohol for at least 24 hours. You may be asked to drink extra fluids to make sure you don’t get dehydrated.Now that you know what to expect, what’s holding you back?While it’s perfectly normal to greet your colonoscopy with apprehension, it should be prioritized because it could save your life.

  • Governor Wolf: Restore Pennsylvania Will Help Lancaster County Battle Blight

    first_img March 20, 2019 Governor Wolf: Restore Pennsylvania Will Help Lancaster County Battle Blight Infrastructure,  Press Release,  Restore Pennsylvania Columbia, PA – Today, Governor Tom Wolf outlined the components of the most aggressive infrastructure plan in generations, Restore Pennsylvania. The governor’s plan will help communities in Lancaster County address blight, expand broadband access, mitigate the effects of localized flooding, and expand green infrastructure, restoring communities after long neglect.“My vision for Pennsylvania includes vibrant towns and cities with new development, opportunities in rural and disadvantaged areas, and a modern, interconnected commonwealth,” said Governor Wolf. “Unfortunately, after decades of neglect and declining federal investment, Pennsylvania is falling behind, and we need a bold plan to get us back on track.”To achieve these goals, Governor Wolf announced an ambitious infrastructure initiative, Restore Pennsylvania, funded by the monetization of a commonsense severance tax. Restore Pennsylvania will invest $4.5 billion over the next four years in significant high-impact projects throughout the commonwealth to help catapult Pennsylvania ahead of every state in the country in terms of technology, development, and infrastructure.Encompassing new and expanded programs to address five priority infrastructure areas including high speed internet access, storm preparedness and disaster recovery, downstream manufacturing, business development, and energy infrastructure, demolition, revitalization, and renewal, and transportation capital projects, Restore Pennsylvania projects will be driven by local input about community needs. Projects identified by local stakeholders will be evaluated through a competitive process to ensure that high priority, high impact projects are funded and needs across Pennsylvania are met.Restore Pennsylvania will increase resources for addressing blight by providing financial resources at the local level to establish land banks and acquire and demolish blighted buildings in order to create new development opportunities or provide new green space. The funding will be administered by entities established by the legislature as land banks or demolition funds.“This infrastructure proposal couldn’t come at a more important time,” according to Matthew Sternberg, executive director of the Lancaster County Redevelopment Authority. “Lancaster County has come a long way in understanding the problems and putting good mechanisms in place to address them. Our County Land Bank, Redevelopment Authority and Economic Development Company work closely with our planners and communities to determine effective solutions. But financial resources are scarce. A reliable funding stream over four years will go a long way to bolster investment and position our communities for success.”In 2016, Lancaster County launched the Lancaster County Land Bank Authority and began work within the boroughs of Columbia and Marietta. Still, municipalities are struggling with funding and the demolition and reinvigoration of blighted and abandoned properties. In Columbia, the governor outlined how Restore Pennsylvania will help the borough and Lancaster County address blight.“Blighted homes threaten residents’ health and safety, cost local governments for enforcement and maintenance, reduce property values and tax revenue, and make communities less attractive for investment,” said Governor Wolf. “Some of these blighted properties are in desirable locations but a lack of funding has prevented communities from large initiatives that would allow them to be redeveloped. Restore Pennsylvania is needed to property support our communities.”View the full Restore Pennsylvania plan here.center_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

  • How many properties does it take to retire comfortably?

    first_imgProperty investment expert and author, Margaret Lomas. Picture: Sam MooyWHEN it comes to real estate investors, those with multi-property portfolios aren’t that common, but it’s just as important to know when to stop as when to start. According to CoreLogic analysis of ATO and ABS data, just over two million Australians held an interest in an investment property in 2015.Of that two million, 71.6 per cent had just one property, while just 18 per cent held two.From there the numbers continued to drop dramatically to the point where investors with six or more totalled a minuscule 0.9 per cent of the investor population — or just over 19,000 people. Investing is a long-term strategy according to Ms LomasBut those 19,000 Australian are onto something according to Destiny founder, Margaret Lomas — as long as they know when to stop.According to Ms Lomas, a portfolio of seven properties is enough to provide a comfortable retirement.“It’s really a value more than a number, but because people like numbers, I always think seven is about it — but we’ve got to understand how that seven then rolls out over a lifetime,” Ms Lomas said.Ms Lomas said if you have the means to buy seven properties in one go, then good on you, but the vast majority of investors need long-term plans. Seven is the magic number.“If you’re like the normal, everyday person, you’re going to start with one and it’s going to take you a couple of years before you’re ready to buy a second,” Ms Lomas said.“They might reach the fourth year with three (properties) and then by the time they get to year five and six, they’re at that point where they probably can buy two at once, and they’ve got more of an appetite for risk,” she said.“To have a $100,000-a-year lifestyle, your need to have a clear (debt free) $2 million worth of property. If you’ve bought seven and you’ve given those 15 years (growth), there’s a chance you’re going to get there, but I don’t want people thinking they’re going to make millions and millions out of property very quickly, because it doesn’t happen that way,” she said.More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this homeless than 1 hour agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investorless than 1 hour agoRisk management is important.Ms Lomas said investors are sold the mindset to own more than this by ‘advisers’ with vested interests.“I blame the spruikers for that because obviously it’s in a spruiker’s best interest to have a client come on board and buy as many properties as they possibly can, and we all know a spruiker will make their money out of a property sale,” Ms Lomas said.“For every sale that goes through, they’re probably in for (commissions of) anything between $20,000 to $40,000, and the more they can get a particular client to buy, the more that client is worth to them over their lifetime,” she said. GROWTH OR CASH FLOW? Find growth-driver locations and then look for the right propertyMs Lomas said forget about the capital growth vs. cash flow debate when selecting an investment, because you can have both.She said look for areas with price-growth drivers like infrastructure development, increasing numbers of families, diversity of industry for jobs and limited development to keep supply down.“Your aim as an investor is to spot growth drivers. Once you’ve done that, you’ve got to find the kind of property in that area that’s going to appeal to both buyers and renters,” she said.Ms Lomas said over the long-term, the right properties will see good growth and achieve a comfortable five per cent yield to help service the debt. GOT THEM! NOW WHAT? What next? is often the question. Picture: AAP/Ashley FederMs Lomas said once you’ve acquired the investments, hold off on action for as long as possible.She said smart investors will even use their superannuation first in retirement so the portfolio has more time to rise in both rent and value.“When you get to the point where your superannuation is starting to wear a little thin, then your property should be good to go,” she said.Ms Lomas said, depending on circumstances, you can either live off your portfolio’s positive rental income, or choose to sell down some holdings to reduce the debt on others which boosts your total returns.“The longer you can keep them past that retirement phase and use other sources of income, the better because if you can even add five years to the 15 years you’ve already waited, that five years will make a big difference,” she said.Follow Kieran Clair on Twitter at @kieranclair or Facebook at Kieran Clair — journolast_img read more
