I'm having my first in a week due to abdominal pain and a couple other symptoms (I'm 31) and I am also suffering from the "what ifs."

l hope you get good results. Be sure to come back and update us.

I also take the iron with vitamin C...it helps with absorption.

Even if they find something you had one six years ago. It takes polyps ten years to turn into cancer I believe. You're more than fine. I had one last month because of bleeding and family history. Nothing bad.

Everything went well yay! My colon looks great! The doctor took some biopsies to rule out microscopic colitis and some stool samples to check for infection. But he said everything looks great! Thank God! and thank you all for your support!

The prep wasn't too bad actually.... but yes eat slowing after the procedure. I just came from from the procedure and had pasta with mussels and clams, maybe not the best choice and my stomach hurts a bit right now. It's gas pains, which is normal after the colonoscopy.

Well so in conclusion my low iron is due to my periods.... I am having my second iron IV infusion tomorrow. I feel a bit of more energy already with the first one!

Good luck to the ones who will get a colonoscopy soon!!!! BTW I love the Anesthesia LOL.... I feels like an awesome deep sleep! I know it sounds kind of creepy but it feels good LOL!
