Waiting on test results

I had my colonoscopy and EGD scope yesterday for blood in stool for 8 weeks and they said they did t see any cancer, tumors, ulcers, or polyps. Praise God, ! They did see inflammation in the colon and took biopsies to see what's causing that and how to treat it possibly colitis, my fear is that they might say cancer , I know she said she didn't see any . My stomach is still very gassy and only tiny pieces of poop with blood , like wet gas. So I'm still scared of what this could be . Any suggestions

The inflammation in the colon is highly unlikely to be cancer and is not serious, even though they took biopsis it's highly unlikely they wouldn't have recognised cancer if it was there. I suggest you should be 99% relieved instead of still 'scared'. When they tell you the inflammation is only inflammation I hope you will be 100% relieved and not continue to worry in case they've made a mistake. This is how anxiety works on us, always worrying about illnesses we don't have.

The part I'm worried about is what has been causing some blood in my stool and not much stool coming out even before my prep. The blood even though it's not a lot has been going on for almost 8 weeks . And how this is going on is worrying me

Try not to worry sounds like it can be fixed by gastro doctor .plus hamariods can be high up in bowels or colon and they can cause bleeding to.that's what was causing my blood in stools.hope this makes you feel better.
