Harry Smith’s Early Show colonoscopy is being replayed on CBS.com.
You can watch Harry and Katie Couric the day before the test discuss the prep and talk about saving lives by finding polyps. This morning, Katie is in the procedure room with Harry and the medical staff.
Dr. Mark Pochapin demonstrates how the colonoscope works to view the colon, snare polyps if they are found, and remove them.
As Dr. Pochapin withdraws the scope, Harry is awake but comfortable, talking and asking questions. Dr. Pochapin explains what he is seeing on the video monitor in Harry’s colon.
Afterwards, Harry said, “Piece of cake! You have a tremendous peace of mind.”
Katie says, “Do it for the people you love.”
