I’m new here and just looking for some support. The last two weeks I’ve had occasional blood in my stool and sometimes in the toilet paper after wiping. I have a feeling as if something is stuck in my bum but nothing takes the pressure away. I have loose stools but also have gallbladder issues so not sure if it is related to this. I also have stomach cramps but again not sure if this is all related since it is also that time of the month for me. I feel incredibly scared and nervous. I’m so stressed out there’s days where all I do is cry because I’m just terrified that it’s colon cancer. My doctor thinks maybe it’s an internal hemorrhoid so he gave some rectal suppositories and it took away the burning and itching I have and temporarily the pressure in my rectum but now the pressure is back. I have asked my doctor for a colonoscopy but again I’m already terrified for the results.
Anyone out there with the same symptoms? If you have been diagnosed with colon cancer what were your symptoms? This all is making me so stressed out. I feel so scared.
