She also told her followers how "prevention is your best friend" when it comes to such kind of situations.
"It was a fairly eventful 2 days. Proud of my excellent prep providing my doctors an awesome view.. Very little anxiety going into my very first colonoscopy too. Was able to prove to myself that I can dunk lots of liquid into my system, that the mind is stronger than hunger pangs, that health insurance & PhilHealth is IMPORTANT (do not ever make it your least priority... Always grateful! @maxicarehealthcare ), prevention is your best friend & that the warrior in me prevails because I do not ever use my discomfort as an excuse & I do have the will to show up & support our artists- even after a medical procedure."
Halfway through her post, Chynna told everyone that pain is a "friend" and is the body's way of "allowing you to care for it."
"Again, please... never ignore pains & red flags in your system. Pain is a friend & your body’s way of allowing you to care for it. This colonoscopy has allowed us to rule out Chrons, UC & Colorectal Cancer. In case you or your loved one is 50 years old & do not feel anything in your digestive system, PLEASE take time & get screened because polyps can still form without you knowing & develop into cancer. A colonoscopy will help save your life."
