Flexible sigmoidoscopy
« on: June 12, 2014, 11:55:46 AM »
After months if worrying and stomach troubles I finally have a flexible sigmoidoscopy in the next 2 weeks. Now I'm anxious AGAIN in case they actually find cancer  ::) Going to the loo over the past couple of weeks has been alright, better than it was. I haven't had blood when I've gone for a couple of months (that I'm aware of) and I'm not anaemic. I have had a lot of mucus though and differentiating constipation and diarrhoea. I usually get diarrhoea one day every 2 weeks though recently it lasted a few days. I'm experiencing a day like this at the moment though a few days ago I went and from what I could tell, it was normal.

I guess what I'm seeking right now is reassurance although I know I really have to just wait for the flexible sigmoidoscopy. If I had cancer, the diarrhoea and or constipation wouldn't be off and on right? And I'd ALWAYS have blood? I wouldn't have a good few days then a bad day?

Someone tell me it's all going to be fine lol

I had a flex sig in April. It qanat bad at all however I had I go back the next day and have the full colonoscopy because I HA a polyp in my sigmoid along with internal hemorrhoids. I was having periodic blood on my stools. The colonoscopy revealed a healthy colon and my polyp was removed and biopsied. It was a benign hyperplastic polyp with no C risk at all. I was 26 BTW. Now 27. I was completely sedated for both scopes. They were extremely easy. The hard part was my anxiety over the findings.

Thanks Lindsay. It's my anxiety that's effecting me so much right now. I'm so worried they will find something bad.
