I'm really struggling I was up all night reading stage 4 bowel cancer stories. Bowel prep has made me feels so I'll I just don't think I can do this I've never been so scared
Please let us know how you get on! I am sure that it will be fine, try not to stress, you may find out in a few hours that you are clear and then you can relax!
i know that it is easier said than done xx
I feel for you.
I was in a similar position; had my colonnoscopy on Tuesday after beign rushed down the emergency pathway.
I can promise that the prep is the worst part of the procedure. Just be prepared after for some nausea, blood in stool and stomach pains for a couple of days (diarreah, gas) etc. as your body clears itself out.
The Consultant should give you the results there and then - to put your mind at ease.
Mine came back all clear. I am wishing you the best of luck.
Thank you for your well wishes everyone it really means a lot and helped me today. Prep was def worse than the procedure the staff there are so lovely. I opted for gas and air and it was fine. Mild patchy inflammation was found on terminal ileum. Doctor says it might be mild crohns? You were right I feel so much better now I know crohns is not ideal but better than what I had invisioned x
Glad it went okay for you. I have mine in the morning. Prep wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Hope I can say the same about the procedure. Crohns isn't ideal but at least you know what is wrong and can get help. I just hope I get answers too. My fit result was over 400 and the doctor said it was alarming but then said it could be a polyp or haemorrhoids.
good luck for tomorrow!! imo gas and air is the best option i even started laughing mid procedure felt like i had been to the pub.. i had no bleeding just high calprotine. i think bleeding is more colitis and not bleeding is crohns? but im not a doctor.
