since the day before Christmas I have been having bowel issues. I have been going to the bathroom in the morning but when I lay back down I have rectal pressure and sporadic abdominal pain. The pain is in different places and comes and goes. Since then I have had a decrease in appetite and weight loss. My bm are regular but today they were normal in size but the last of them were skinnier. I thought I saw red blood mixed but can’t be sure.  I have been very gaseous and my stomach is constantly making noise. Blood work and Abdominal CT Scan looked good. Going see gi doc Wednesday. I’m sure he will order a colonoscopy. I can’t stop obsessing. I’m being told this is why I’m having rectal pressure....anxiety. Yesterday and today I feel blah! I have already given myself a death sentence. I wake up many times during the night and pray to Be healed. I know I cant change anything and you cannot diagnose me but I have no one to talk to. My parents get aggravated with me and make an excuse for every symptom. Is the pain constant with this type of cancer.?would a ct scan/blood work showed something? I guess I’ll know Wednesday. I just had to get these feeling out to someone. Thanks for listening. Prayers to you all.

    Hello Heidi.  Sorry that you are in so much pain. I know how you feel I have suffered for years with gut issues and all that goes with it. Yes a ct scan would show up cancer my sister was diagnosed with colon cancer and a different kind of cancer I her lungs last Oct. I would ask for the colonoscopy though. Good luck.

    Relax. Your symptoms are recent so there is no need for concern. 

    A colonoscopy is a great idea, so make sure you do that. 

    Blood on stools can mean many things and you have not ignored your symptoms but are being resourceful.

    That’s all you can do.  

    Great going ! 

    Life is uncertain sometimes and it is usually fine. Get the colonoscopy and you will feel better Heidi.

      Hi Heidi was wondering if u had your colonoscopy and how you were doing. I also have very bad anxiety and know how you feel. To make you feel better yes if there was something wrong they would have seen it on the ct scan I did have a precancerous polyp and it was seen on my scan I had the colonoscopy it was removed and I have to get my followup one next month just to make sure everything is still ok this was 6 months ago when this happend to me. Sometimes when we get things in our heads we start giving ourselves symptoms and then we start googling and making things even worse for ourselves. I'm older then you I am 43 I don't think u have anything to worry about but you will feel much better after you get the colonoscopy you can always private message me if u just need someone to talk to. Try not to worry I kno it's easier Said then done trust me. ?

    You will be ok just try and think positive. If it was cancer or anything super serious it would have shown up in the ct. it may be just something simple they can fix. Like I said if u ever just need to talk u can private message me. Please let me kno how your colonoscopy goes. I have mine on Monday I’m dreading mine but once it’s over it will ease my mind a little.
