So, yeah, I overreacted. I had my colonoscopy and it's all fine, don't have to have another one for 10 years. My mind just went crazy when this doctor said she "felt something" and she didn't tell me what it was was. I told her about this doctor many years ago finding what he said was a "polyp" and she asked if my stools were thin or anything and I said no. I just kept thinking about the whole thing and my hemorroids were hurting so bad at the time that I thought there was something really bad wrong in there. It did help when I called and she said it was a "small nodule." The surgeon who did the colonoscopy said this was just some fatty tissue. I also have chronic back pain and sometimes pelvic pain. I believe the pelvic pain is due to arthritis in my joints, because I've had this for a long time and my joints and muscles are getting weak. I do plan to go back to the doctor and say "O.K., what do we do now?" I am so sick and tired of being in pain. She put me on Tramadol during the 10 days before the colonoscopy because I couldn't take my anti-inflammatory and this seemed to control my pain. I don't know though if this a drug that should be taken long term. Anyhow, that's another story, but it was just a bunch of stuff and I need to be sure that what I assume is just my back pain, isn't something more serious. Thanks for letting me rant, I just didn't have anyone to talk to!
