Hi, it is great to hear about your wonderful news. I am 33 and I have red sometimes red and darker red and sometimes really dark. I am scared to death of colon cancer. I have some abdominal pain about 2 fingers up above belly button and to the right and 2 fingers. I am very nervous. I have had this red in bowel movements for like over a year. What does the diverticula feel like. I went to a rectal and colon dr and he said for my age was very unlikely colon cancer but wanted to do a colonoscopy, well I didn't go because I am sooooooo nervous. was hoping maybe you could help me a little.
trust me you will be relieved after the colonoscopy, its worth it, just do it. I just had one last month and the night before i did get really nervous about it, almost canceled, all the prep work you have to do is the worst part, but the actual procedure was easy, i was knocked out and woke up and felt like nothing ever happened, I had an EGD at the same time. I was happy they ruled our cancer, but still a little annoyed I was unable to find out what was wrong with me. my advise though is to just do it and get it over with.
