My report say
10mm polyp in sigmoid
Internal hemorrhoids
All other exam looks normal

The polyp is the mushroom looking kind with a small stalk. Aren't these the more common kind.

My mom had a polyp when she was younger.  Totally benign.  They can usually tell by looking whether it's something potentially worrisome or almost definitely benign. 

I know it's hard not to worry, but as soon as that polyp is out, start calling therapists in your area.  You need to deal with your anxiety NOW because as you see, it's already creating another worry for you.

The doctor can't tell by appearance wether it is hyperplastic or adenomatous. The polyps on the stalk are more common than flat polyps yes but both hyperplastic and adenomas are on the stalk.

I'm seriously a wreck. I started the prep and I'm extremely nauseated and have already started pooping. I want tomorrow to be done and over with. This isn't good on my HA and now it's going to sky rocket and I didn't think that was possible.

Well Lindsay, I don't mean for this to sound insensitive, but if you weren't getting a colonoscopy tomorrow, you'd probably still be freaking out about your polyp.

So often, our anxiety over our symptoms causes us to pursue medical testing, but when we get the very thing we want, we remain anxious. Do you see what I'm saying? Either way you're going to be scared. At times like this it's best to try and help yourself as much as possible. Don't make things worse by googling; start taking that anti-anxiety medication. Once you have your colonoscopy, then maybe it's time to look into anxiety treatment in earnest, before you pick another disease to fear and the cycle starts all over again.

In case anyone is still confused:  googling your symptoms will cause you to remain in a state of extreme anxiety. Stepping away from the internet is the first step toward lasting peace.

I'm sick to my stomach over this. I have come of the drugs more and it has set in that that found a polyp. I'm TERRFIED it's something or than that. Can the tell CC vs polyp? It's small an all the tissue looks healthy but I'm so nervous about this. It's HELL. I have been googling polyps an I'm ill now.

They can almost always tell the difference.  If she said it looked good, most likely it's just fine.

I didn't want to say anything before but I really don't see the point of the flex sig exam at all.  I wonder how many folks have one and really should have had the more comprehensive colonoscopy instead?  That's what happened to me.  I had a flex sig and they still needed to see more so I had to go in for a colonoscopy shortly afterwards.

BTW, my friend had a polyp removed from her colon and her veteran doctor told her it was the BIGGEST one he had ever removed in all of his years.  Benign.

Take a nice hot bath and relax!!

Trust me I will be in the bath soaking my raw butt ;) she was able to see my sigmoid and defending but nothing past that. I'm so nauseated from the prep. Don't think I can finish it without vomiting.

Between you and me...I couldn't finish mine completely.  One half more glass - just couldn't do it.  As long as in the morning its "clear" in the toilet I felt it would be ok and it was.

When was the last time you ate anything? Like 48 hrs ago? 

Be sure to drink a lot of water so you don't get dehydrated along with being starved.

Your hinder must be so sore - do you have a Prep H?  They are very soothing - even half of one.

Good luck!!!

Lindsay you have to stop googling!!!!!  Just stop.  All you're doing is feeding your anxiety.

I'm going to ask you a very tough question…you don't have to answer me here but I hope you answer yourself.  WHY won't you treat your anxiety???  What is stopping you?
