I’m a new member here and I’m absolutely terrified of what the result of the colonoscopy tomorrow will be. I’m 27 years old male and my birthday is in 9 days so this is absolutely horrible.
It started beginning of April with pellet poop and when I researched why that was happening, it came up as constipation. Looking for reasons for constipation, fiber and cancer popped up. I had been eating a lot of this protein pita and realized it had a ton of fiber so I stopped but the constipation continued. I drank more water and stopped the pita with no change. I went to the GI mid May and gave me Miralax which worked as long as I taking it, when I stopped my problems continued. The GI also scheduled an endoscopy because of nausea that I was feeling in January and tested positive for H.Pylori. I asked the GI for a colonoscopy because I’m fearing the worst and he wouldn’t schedule it. So I called another GI and he agreed to schedule one, which I have tomorrow.
My symptoms are:
-contsiptation: it started with pellet poop and now I go less often. Used to go once a day, now it is once every couple of days. After taking the miralax, my poop is now always floating, which is another concern
-I have a lot of gas and rumbling in my stomach all the time
-I feel rectal pressure that comes and goes
What are my chances of colon/rectal cancer? I have already put in my mind that’s what it is and I’m crying daily waiting for the worst news after the colonoscopy tomorrow.
