I'm hoping that my GI will order more testing. Maybe he will want to do a colonoscopy. None of my doctors are examining me in person. I don't have the report from my colonoscopy. All I know is that my GI said it was normal. He said that everything around the anastomosis site was fine. In the past I had it strength. My colonoscopy showed no evidence of my cancer coming back. That's what my GI told me. I have quite often dealt with hemorrhoids or tears. With the tears I will have some blood on the paper when I wipe and it burns a little. I've never had some blood floating in the water nor more blood on the paper I had put in the toilet bowl. I have an anal skin tag which I think causes issues too.

I think your spell-checker probably inserted the wrong word above. Shouldn't it be "stretched" ?

What did the GI have to say today?

Yes, for some reason it entered strength. I did mean stretch. It was an awful experience because it was done via sigmoidoscopy without sedation. My GI's office hasn't called. His receptionist usually will call to give me a date and time that he will call me. He usually doesn't take me seriously saying it's just IBS so I don't expect to hear back from him anytime soon. Due to the doctor shortage there are only about two(maybe three) GI's all of whom work in the same office.

I had an ischemic colitis attack on Friday. It was without bleeding. Usually after an Ischemic attack I have cramping, , bloating, and gas for only a few days. This time it has lingered. I went back to eating twice with a liquid lunch. Today even the Boost plus calories is bothering me. I get nauseous more often too. I need to have the calories from the solid food but I'm thinking maybe I should go to liquids for the rest of the night and maybe for the next day or so. I have to fast for 12 hours for blood tests on the 27th so I will need to try to have solid food afterward on that day. I'm finding this frustrating. I need to gain weight but I can't deal with this awful cramping and bloating! I try to take buscopan sparingly so they will last longer before I go to buy them over the counter again.(insurance doesn't cover them).
