You’re doing everything right, so the best thing to do is to just relax best you can (easier said than done, I know) You’ll get results the same day as your colonoscopy, though definitive diagnoses may require biopsy results which can take a week or two. Hopefully you’ll get answers that can put you on the path to treatment, since eating only rice is no fun at all.
Everyone has different symptoms, so alas, it’s a bit like reading tea leaves, and for me trying to predict the future based on Dr Google actually made things worse because of stress.
I found that probiotics helped my pre-surgery symptoms a great deal, so you may want to ask your doctor about that.
Good on you getting checked out, by the way—hopefully it’s good news that can help you feel better soon!
