My GI physician told me that it is not the look of the stool, but the volume.
At 28 your chances of cancer are remote. If you are concerned, I would opt for the
colonoscopy over the flex sig, to remove any doubts you may have. I also do not see
any attachments.

I think the picture has to be approved before others can see it. Because I can see it! I want I have the scope I am just to afraid to hear its something I have fears since childhood (the C word) I'm 26 an have so much more to do in this world.
I will tell you though my SH*T has absolutely had complete control over my life since last January.

My GI physician told me that stress can wreck havoc with your digestive system and odds are that is
what is happening to you.

Forget a flex sig - get a colonoscopy! Have them look at the entire large intestine to put your mind at ease.  :yes: I've had 2 with no problems.

Sure, I don't mind! In '07 I was having 6-7 loose BM's per day with occasional severe cramping. This went on for 6 months so I finally went to a GI Dr. I mentioned to him in additional to that, in 2000 I was having 5+ BM's/day that were nothing but blood. It eventually went away after almost a year on it's own. How I didn't have HA then is beyond me! GI said let's do a colonoscopy. After scope he said I have Ulcerative Colitis + hemmies. Tried Rx meds, they made me MORE sick. Quit all Rx meds. Became pregnant, then did all natural therapy with a holistic Dr. by the time I had 2nd scope in 2010 my colon was normal! If you want any details about anything just ask, I'm not embarrassed!  :bigsmile:

Flex sig is only going to show you whats going on in the very end of your colon. I would rather get knocked out and get the whole picture.

Amazing what HA does to a person.  5x a day, nothing but blood...just waited for that to go away!  But now a possibly unusual stool shape (I can't see the pic either, so I have no idea) has you fearing the worst!  What a fun life we lead.

"Thin" stool I think generally means like a pencil.  (And even those on occasion can be normal; I've had 'em over the years, and for all my health weirdness I'm pretty sure I haven't had colon cancer all this time!)

Mine is no where pencil thin, but before making changes to my set had passed extremely hard and wide stool that hurt when passing. This is probably quarter sized in diameter and several pieces not one huge wide piece before fiber and ground flax seed.  I have never passed nothing but blood and have only seen blood in the water separate from stool during a bad stomach flu my family passed around and that resolved with in a couple hours and I have never seen it again. Any thing after their was very very small (one streak) on on piece if stool. I was witnessed one of my externals bleeding  but its such a small amount. 

My picture is still awaiting approval. Ill try to post again!

Honestly this looks like a very normal stool. You really don't need to worry
