What if ? :(
« on: December 02, 2013, 01:58:35 PM »
On wednesday I have a flex sig. What if they find cancer ? That's my mind frame.  Crazy. I want to be ok for my daughter. This has been a 6 month battle. Christmas is around the corner and I'm terrified it will be my last one. Why you say ? Because I have convinced myself I have a horrible bowel disease.

:( :(. I can't think about the test and I shake all over.

The good news is that on Wednesday you'll have an answer - most likely a good one that will allow you to enjoy the holidays with your daughter!

jbg, I think we all think the worst when we are asked to do a colonoscopy.  I work in pathology, so I can tell you that the colonoscopies that come back with cancer are far fewer than any of those that come back benign or with a polyp or treatable bowel syndrome.  The whole procedure from stop to start shouldn't take but 20 minutes and then they will wake you and let you know that there were no concerns.  That's one thing they can most times tell you with certainty that your colon was clear.  You are almost there....do you prep work tonight and tomorrow you'll have a good answer and can put this behind you!!!

Let us know how it turns out!!

Sounds like IBS or maybe diverticulitis, not cancer.  Of course, those aren't pleasant, either, but at least not fatal...  Just uncomfortable.

Good luck. Just try to visualise a good outcome and don't get fooled into the trap that I always end up in of thinking that because I am being optimistic I am going to jinx it!
