Mass on the right lower pelvis, blood from vagina (up high) have had all female parts removed previously, plump right adrenal gland, thickening of right bladder wall,
He got a ways with the colonoscopy and said what he saw looked like diverticulitis but he says he cannot of course see what is on the outside of the colon until surgery.
I have also had thin stools ie change in bowel habits.
I can accept the fact this MAY be cancer .......just curious if anyone else had a failed colonoscopy and failed barium enema or any similar symptoms like I have had? I am 61 years old.
thanks in advance for sharing your story!

I'm staying positive as I feel fine. Back in October I had a parital bowel obstruction this is my 4th, last one was about 9 yrs ago, I'm now 46.
The reason suggested I do a colonoscopy was to see why happening, my Mom did have colon cancer at 73. I must say if it is anything more than
a blockage I'll be in shock.
