Rob & Ryan Lead From Behind


Speaker 1 (00:03):

Hey Ryan, should we do this?

Speaker 2 (00:05):

Let's do this. Okay. Hello there. I'm Ryan Reynolds, co-chairman of the Welsh Football Club, Rex, m a f c.

Speaker 1 (00:11):

And I am Rob McElhanney, also co-chairman of the Welsh Football Club. Rex, m a f c.

Speaker 2 (00:17):

You know, at the heart of all sports is competition and Rob and I, I think, well, we're pretty competitive guys. Hmm.

Speaker 1 (00:24):

We're so competitive. In fact, that last year Ryan and I made a bet.

Speaker 2 (00:28):

Did we? I don't remember that. Hmm.

Speaker 1 (00:37):


Speaker 2 (00:39):

You picked some up.

Speaker 1 (00:40):

Good. Hmm. Chevy a colonoscopy on.

Speaker 2 (00:52):

Yes. Yes I did. Yeah. Rob and I both, we turned 45 this year and you know, part of being this age is getting a colonoscopy. It's a simple step that could literally, and I mean literally save your life.

Speaker 1 (01:07):

So can we see it now? No.

Speaker 3 (01:15):

I would never normally have any medical procedure put on camera and that's shared. Good morning. It's not every day that you can raise awareness about something that will most definitely save lives going in. That's enough motivation for me to let you in on a camera being shoved up my

Speaker 4 (01:37):

Ryan. Hello. It's the first time you've had a colonoscopy. Yeah. And

Speaker 3 (01:42):

We're filming it.

Speaker 4 (01:43):

You're filming

Speaker 3 (01:44):

It. Which, which like also just awful.

Speaker 4 (01:48):

The procedure itself doesn't take long. We talking, you know, 30 minutes, something like that. It's stunningly effective.

Speaker 3 (02:04):

I'm gonna ate a graham cracker.

Speaker 4 (02:09):

You did such a good prep that I was able to find an extremely subtle polyp that was on the right side of your colon and this was potentially lifesaving for you. I'm not kidding. I'm not being overly dramatic. I mean, I love it. This is exactly why you do this. Okay. You had no symptoms. Yeah. All right, man.

Speaker 3 (02:27):

Okay. Yeah.

Speaker 4 (02:29):


Speaker 3 (02:29):

Thrilled for you. Thank you so much for this. Seriously, thank you for pushing me to do this. Can't believe you pumped all that aviation gin into my Ivy eyes out like light.

Speaker 4 (02:39):

This is the polyp I put, I just cut it off with the snare and it's gone. You are interrupting the natural history of a disease, of something, of a process that could, could have ended up, you know, developing into cancer and, and causing all sorts of problems. Instead, you're not only diagnosing the polyp you're taking out. So nobody would know that they had this. But he reached the age of, of screening 45, he got a routine screening. And there you go. And that's why people need to do this. They really need to do this. This saves lives pure and simple.

Speaker 3 (03:16):

They didn't find Rose rosebud up

Speaker 5 (03:17):


Speaker 3 (03:20):

My rosebud was a sled I shoved on my as when I was a kid, so.

Speaker 5 (03:27):

Oh, that didn't seem so bad. Do you wanna broadcast yours? No. Well, too bad because we filmed it. Those were your cameras. All right. 90 on dot. All good. Thank you. Just sit here.

Speaker 6 (03:44):

Can I sit here to fill this out? He's not listening. 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 all set 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 went,

Speaker 5 (04:09):

How are you?

Speaker 7 (04:10):

I'm doing great. Basically this test, a colonoscopy test is the gold standard test for the prevention of colon cancer. So we think that colon cancer is a 100% preventable disease if healthy people get their periodic test. Okay, we'll get started in a little bit.

Speaker 5 (04:28):

Okay. Thank you. Sorry. Watching the

Speaker 6 (04:31):

Show. I love it. Oh, which one?

Speaker 5 (04:34):

The welcome to

Speaker 6 (04:36):

Anne. Oh yeah. Thank you.

Speaker 5 (04:48):

Rolling. Hi.

Speaker 8 (04:51):

You're all done. You're in recovery now.

Speaker 5 (04:57):

So easy.

Speaker 8 (04:58):

Good. How do you feel? I

Speaker 5 (05:00):

Feel great.

Speaker 8 (05:01):

Good. Can you lay on your back for me? Yeah. Thank you. Can I get you water or apple

Speaker 5 (05:07):

Juice? How's my hair?

Speaker 8 (05:09):

Beautiful. You have the hat still on? Can I take it off? Yes.

Speaker 5 (05:12):


Speaker 8 (05:14):

There you go. Do you want a mirror?

Speaker 5 (05:18):

No, thank you. I'm not, I'm not . No fat kidding. Biscuits, graham crackers, apple meals.

Speaker 7 (05:33):

So first of all, I have no bad news. Okay. Only good news. And that is that today we found three polyps. They were small, they were not a big deal, but certainly a good thing that we found them early and removed them because you did such a great job with a clean out. It was spotless inside, you crushed it and you made the job really easy for us that way.

Speaker 6 (05:56):

So is there anything that I can do from a preventative that I can lower

Speaker 7 (06:01):

Right now? I don't think in polyp formers that there is strong evidence that a certain kind of diet makes a difference. What does make a difference is screening and surveillance. So getting in on time is the

Speaker 6 (06:13):

Key. You made it so like, so easy, so amazing. The staff has been incredible all the way through the

Speaker 7 (06:19):

Process. I'm really happy to have you. Congrats.

Speaker 6 (06:21):

Thank you. Okay. Thank you so much. I'll

Speaker 7 (06:23):

See you. I'll see you in a couple years

Speaker 6 (06:25):

Too. Absolutely. Amazing. Thank you.

Speaker 5 (06:31):

Well, that didn't seem so bad. Mm-Hmm. .
