  • I have been worrying about you! The prep for the test sucks, but the test isn't so bad if you are having a colonascopy.
    When is your test?

  • If you would like to talk about the preparations for the test, you can PM me. Colon cancer runs in my family and we have all had the procedure.
    You should know that colon cancer is Very treatable if you do end up with it. But the likelihood is at your age it is something much more minor.
    Good luck and let us know.

  • If it makes you feel any better I had the same issue when I was 21. Turns out it was hemorrhoids. They were caused by the sometimes severe constipation that comes with my IBS.

  • yah i wish it was hemorrhoids, but they checked for that and it isnt... my friend i just talked too said she had the same problem a few weeks ago and they said it was from her c section and something going wrong with it... ( i had a c section too 8 months ago...)

  • Good luck to you. As terrible as it is to go through the test, better to do it EARLY than too late. My mom's colon cancer was detected too late.
