Re: Still scared after colonoscopy

Thank you again @ weisssoccermom You're absolutely correct in EVERYTHING that you just said to me! I really have to let that sink in and really take it with me. It's true. And when I am in a rational state of mind, I can think just like that project that behavior as well. This whole thing (the anxie...

Re: Still scared after colonoscopy

@ weisssoccermom Thank you so very much for taking the time to respond to me. Your post truly does mean a lot, and I think it really let certain things sink in for me. You're absolutely right, I am suffering from severe health anxiety-to the point where I can't live my daily life without this fear b...

Re: Still scared after colonoscopy

Hemorrhoids can cause bleeding. You had a clear scope and a perfectly reasonable explanation for the blood in your stool. Maybe you need to consider changing therapists or seeking other treatment for your anxiety. Good luck. Thank you for your reply. You are right. And I just have to get to that po...

Do you have this report with you?


I never got a copy of the report. I can ask for one though but I’m going to see her on Tuesday so I guess I can ask?

Re: Still scared after colonoscopy

Thanks for the reply. I’m going to make another appointment with my GI and go over things with her. I’m sure if my prep wasn’t that good or she couldn’t perform all the way, she kind of has an obligation to tell me rather than say all clear. But we’ll see. Still worried but no sense I guess...

Still scared after colonoscopy

Hi everyone, I've been reading these forums for a few months now, and I started when I first had my fear of CC due to some symptoms I was having (mainly diarrhea every few days and cramping). My GI doctor said she was pretty sure that it was IBS. But then some members on here told me to push for a c...

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

Thank you both so much for your responses. I think you both are right, I should just save up and do the scope. I feel like no matter what the GI says or my doctor says, I'm going to still have anxiety over this, which probably isn't going to help the situation I am in with having diarrhea. So I just...

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

Hi, everyone. First off I just want to say I'm so inspired by your stories that I've been reading these last few days while trying to cope with my own anxieties. I don't have too many people to talk to about my concerns, because it just gets chalked up to "health anxiety" or that I'm being...
