Getting the colonoscopy is nothing more than a minor inconvenience,certainly not bad enough to warrant not doing it. I so wish I had just done it back when my symptoms first started, but yeah, you hear people talk about how bad the prep is, and it freaks you out a bit. But trust me, there was really nothing to it. I'm so glad now to have an idea of what I'm up against, instead of trying to tell myself that it's OK, sure, normal to have some blood in your poop,because it's not, and the sooner you can rectify that, the better.
You'll be fine.
By the glory, by the grace, by the strength of God, I will be made whole.
