Re: I'm extremely worried and alone, any advice is appreciated..

Doesn't sound like colon cancer symptoms. You also mention stress - maybe you're suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome? You basically have two choices now - either you save up for colonoscopy and ease your mind, or you don't, and it's up to you if you can get over it. In my opinion you should pres...

Re: 22 years old and scared to death

I'd like to thank you all for being such a great support system, and I honestly and wholeheartedly wish every single one of you all the best in your lives. I hope that if someone with similar symptoms like me finds this thread, he'll go and do the colonoscopy, because polyps at 22 aren't really norm...

Re: 22 years old and scared to death

I got my results! There were no hemorrhoids, but they found one 4-5mm polyp, which has been sent to be examined. Otherwise the colon is clean. I'm just wondering, what if the polyp turns out to be cancerous or precancerous? Will I be in trouble later?

Re: 22 years old and scared to death

So here we are, I'll be getting the scope any time soon. Got my catheter in already. I'm trying to think positively but the stress is killing me! I'll update after the scope.

Re: 22 years old and scared to death

Another update. The prep is awful! Tastes horrible, reminds me of swimming pool water. There's some good news I think, doctor came, asked some questions why I'm here etc, and then wanted to see my anus, he took a look and said that there's an obvious hemorrhoid and it probably just burst back then. ...

Re: 22 years old and scared to death

I'm going to keep a small diary here, just to kind of vent and get stuff off my chest. So here we are, at the moment I'm on a train making my way to the hospital. I feel anxious but kinda relieved that the wait is finally over. Hopefully the prep won't be as bad. Waiting for Monday patiently. Edit 1...

Re: 22 years old and scared to death

Fingers crossed for your mom then! Do you know if your mom or/and the friend felt any pain when it ruptured? Most sources say that when hemmorroids burst, there's pain involved, but I had none :/

Re: 22 years old and scared to death

Thank you Pemba, you're a great person! I've got a question for you though and I want you to answer honestly. Do you say all those things just to make me feel better or do you really believe them? Like, you said that from the pic it looks like a burst hemorrhoid, but I did my research and I never sa...

Re: 22 years old and scared to death

And im back to worrying. I found this story online: Andrew, 22 years old In April 2010, I suffered a huge amount of bleeding when I went to the toilet. I had no warning signs – it just happened out of the blue. It was so bad that I went straight to the emergency ward at the hospital. I think they th...

Re: 22 years old and scared to death

Could you guys elaborate on the entertainment part? I honestly thought that the prep makes you go often, but the bm's are quick. Will I spend a lot of time on the toilet then? :D I'm on the optimist spectrum for now because I thought about how I only had this one bleeding and no bleeding after. Like...

Re: 22 years old and scared to death

Well, the increased mucus was only happening for a short time, couple of days at most, and then it settled down, so hopefully that was just some kind of inflammation, or maybe stress related? I had a lot of exams this month lol. Anyways, I'm going to the hospital at Saturday, gonna get the prep for ...

Re: 22 years old and scared to death

Thank you, but I'm still concerned about the passage of mucus. I'm basically laying in bed since an hour and I'm shaking, like this happened to me for the first time ever. Went to have a bowel movement, and had this wet fart which I initially thought was diarrhea, when I wiped the tp basically was s...

Re: 22 years old and scared to death

Thank you for your answers. Yes, I do eat spicy stuff but I doubt that was the case. The pencil thin stool was a one time happening luckily. Anyways, here's another concern of mine. About two hours ago while at school, I felt the urge to have a bm. Let me just copy a post I wrote on Reddit: A month ...

Re: 22 years old and scared to death

Hey everyone, because of one thing today I decided to do an update. So, my colonoscopy is set on January 22. Ever since the initial bleeding I experienced no other symptoms. During last days however, due to a tooth flare up, I was in a lot of stress, ate one time a day and took a lot of OTC pain pil...
