After having my previous 2 appointments cancelled for Colorectal, I finally had my appointment this morning.
He said, after reading my doctors notes i should have a Colonoscopy. It sounds like i have IBS, Polyps & a little Colitis but the only way to know for sure is through having the colonoscopy.
My heart sank, i'd dreaded hearing the word Colonoscopy, although i did think i would be having it today and that led to 3-4 hours sleep last night.
I'm just waiting for my appointment now, he told me not to worry about it and that i can have sedation or gas and air but both of them come with problems.
I know things are never as bad as you think they'll be but i'm genuinely terrified of the pain and the thought of the tube, even more so than what they might find or the diagnosis ( on my last post i mentioned that i have inflammation and IBS doesn't cause that so i'm not to sure what it is maybe it's just the Polyps and Colitis!?!)
I know it needs to be done and to a certain extent i want it done. Finally after years of suffering to have some answers but at the same time i'm terrified so any advice or experience would be greatly appreciated, also, can anyone give my advice on whether to have the Sedation or gas & air please?
Thanks in advance, NiKKI
