Good for you getting checked out (and kudos to your GI for playing it safe).
I also had several weeks between my GI visit and the colonoscopy, so unfortunately the wait is normal—For the interim I found it helpful to remind myself that getting a colonoscopy was the best and only thing I could do, and that I was ahead of the game for doing it—it IS doing something, it isn’t just ‘waiting around’. Give yourself a pat on the back and keep doing it whenever those nerves show up—for some reason it really helped me to take credit for listening to my body.
Finally, Someone on here said Dr Google is a good mortician but a poor doctor. It’s hard, but try not to self-diagnose online—it only made me anxious.
Keep us updated—we’ll be cheering you on for a clean scope!
