... I have had 4 colonoscopies and have mixed feelings about the virtual colonoscopy, primarily, because if they find something, then, you have to go back and get the regular colonoscopy anyway. I think the sigmidoscopy is painful because you aren't put out and all it takes is a little tightening of the rectal muscles for the scope to be painful. During the colonsocopy, you are...

... Make the appointment with the gastro, if you have to have a colonsocopy, then you have to have one. It really is no big deal, I just had my first one and even the prep wasn't too bad. The symptoms you are experiencing can be a number of things, not necessarily bad either, the colonoscopy is the premiere testing. (1 replies)
... to become cancerous. That's where they arrive at that 10 years minimum interval for colonsocopy screening. I had a clean colonoscopy back in 2002, which is only 6 years ago. ... (2 replies)

... oops, sorry I misread your post. I thought you meant after you had the colonsocopy. With me they did say I had some polyps in my stomach, he said they looked benign and not worried but sent them out to be tested anyway. I believe I had to wait a few days as well for the results. The nurse just gave the results over the phone. (9 replies)
... Did your doctor do the colonsocopy or send you somewhere to have it done. that could be why you had to wait. ... (9 replies)
... I was diagnosed in my 30s and my doctors were shocked too. Later on, I found out my grandfather was diagnosed with colorectal cancer, in his late 70s. I never had genetic testing. Fortunately, my cancer was caught early, but my radiation treatment made me infertile and put me into menopause, way too soon. This all took an emotional toll, and, this healthboard was the only...

... Hey July.....................soooooooooo sorry I missed your post, I don't get on every day, and have also been out of town. To answer your question: You are doing great things. My husband now only has a colonoscopy about every 3 years. He did have one every year for 3 or 4 years after they found the cancer. It had eaten into the 3 layers of his colon wall, but...

... I lost my dad this past July to colon cancer. I have suffered for 27 years with IBS and chronic diarreah. I have been through several colonoscopies before. But after having divertriculitis Nov. 04 and then losing dad to colon cancer, I decided it was time for another colonsocopy. They found several polyps and took 5 biopsies. There were medium diverrticula and small... (1 replies)

... I have, I she had a sig about 7 years ago and for some reason she thinks that was good enough. She has no symtoms so im sure she is fine. But it might not matter much anyway. Saturday, 3 days before my scope she tells me she thinks we should seperate. After 19 years. She thinks I was stupid to think I had cancer. So I dont know what to do anymore. Even tho the odd that I... (8 replies)
... Have you told her that people are being diagnosed with colorectal cancer even in their 20s and early 30s? It's a good idea for her to have a colonsocopy, just to check the overall health of her colon, esp. since she's having some problems. (8 replies)
... You're doing the best you can do right now. You have an appt. Definitely get the colonsocopy, to help relieve you of your anxiety. I've had to wait weeks before I could see a doctor.

... A gynecologist can't help you much with this. He will only take a stool sample test and make sure you have blood in your stools, which you already are aware of. You should see a gastroenterologist. I've known people, where there gyno. didn't press for the colonsocopy, and they ended up having colon cancer afterall. It's best to just go straight to the appropriate... (16 replies)
... CancerDad, I just had a colonoscopy on Jauary 28, 2005. At the time of the colonsocopy, the GI told me that I had internal hemmroids, but they were not at the point that I needed surgery. However, the week before I had the colonoscopy he did tell me that I had a skin tag, however, this is the first time that I actually looked and seen this extremely small one, which is right...

... I was 37, when I was diagnosed with colon cancer. I was lucky, and it was caught early, but If I hadn't gone in for the colonsocopy and not listened to my family doctor, I would be dead. Please ask for this test. It is your right. Young people get colon cancer too. ... (10 replies)
... ok.. I had some of the symptoms you say and I was ordered to have a colonsocopy.. But here in Australia you can be put under anesthia (? spelling) to get it done. They could only get up 20cm. (due to a large mass) and so it was that I had to undergo surgery because what ever it was, it wasnt supposed to be there. Yes I thought of cancer also and did some homework. I also... (7 replies)
... Hi Karen: Sounds like EXCELLENT news! Congrats! The treatment protocol sounds good to me. My only concern is that lesion that was found. Did he tell you what he felt it was? Lesions can be present on Endoscopy for a number of reasons, so I don't want to freak you out. Especially since he said he was 99% sure it was nothing. They do these procedures every day, so when...

... Your doctor's recommendations are excellent. It sounds like you have a good doctor. Yes, you are indeed very blessed to have had the bleeding and discovered the problem now. If only more people would do the same, instead of putting if off and risking their lives!!! So glad you got good news. (2 replies)
