... I wouldn't imagine that if I were you. My thought is that if you are having a colonoscopy, doctor is looking for a reason why you are losing blood. You may be like me and simply have internal hemorrhoids.That would account for the blood loss and have nothing to do with having cancer. (8 replies)

... Of course it's unsettling. I understand that. I've had that same experience many times. Just hearing that sort of thing is upsetting. I'm guessing when you start taking iron, you'll feel much better. I take folic acid too but it is the combination of the iron, folic acid and vitamin B-12 that seems to be working so well for me. I don't expect to have another lab until near... (90 replies)
... Thanks rico. My hematologist didn't think it was IDA but it could be folic acid deficiency which is why I am taking folate supplements. She did mention I may need to start iron after next set of labs are taken. I will have those labs taken before my colonoscopy. She doesn't know yet that I have the test scheduled. I know my MIL isn't a blood relative but it's just... (90 replies)

... Tired, Don't get nervous, colon cancer i would think would have some symptoms like maybe weight loss and other symptoms, its probably hemmroids.
