... I would echo with previous posters in that you need to get more investigation done. If a colo-rectal condition is suspected then colonoscopy is one of best ways to take a loot inside and see for sure. CT scans are often used to verify what has already been seen and also if a mass is present they can sometimes see whether it has spread to a greater or lesser extent. If... (10 replies)
... Thank you for the responses, and I hope things are ok for you both. The GI said diverticulitis would have shown up on the CT and that it didn't (that was my first thought too).

... Haley, I just read your reply. I hope you have now followed up with your GI and are set to get a scope. You will surely feel better, just knowing what is going on. I have had a colonoscopy before, and don't worry -- you will definitely be sedated! There are so many things that cause your symptoms, and I'm sure you're stressed it could be the worst... Otherwise,... (10 replies)
... Flintrock, I feel for you, but at your aunts age, perhaps shes thinking she doesnt want to go through all this and I can understand as it is a big process. Maybe the doctors can do something else for pain relief though. Goodluck Maz (10 replies)
... Hi, Not much new but noticed my stools are sometimes flattened but then sometimes normal - can they be normal sometimes if the flattening is from a tumor/polyp? I have a followup appt with my GI next month, so I have been diligently trying to eat fiber / drink water / cut dairy / cut stress / exercise / etc so that I can ask for a colonoscopy without feeling like there...
