Remember? I've been having the loose stools for 2+ weeks and worried about colon cancer? 25 year old Female. You wanted me to keep you updated.
Yes. He said it hasn't been long enough to diagnose me with IBS (says it needs to be going on for at least 3 months), and he also reassured me that it's highly unlikely that this is colon cancer.
A little bit, not totally. I'm still worried about the results. Could this all be stress? Also, I have a HIDA scan scheduled for Tuesday, will these tests interfere with each other? For some reason, when I scheduled the HIDA scan, the scheduler told me that I can't have any other types of testing 2 days before or two days after.
What "more" do you think is going on? You're making me nervous now!
I definitely worry too much. Ok, praying this is just from my gallbladder. Thanks again for your help. I'll let you know how things go.
Had the colonoscopy yesterday - GI doc didn't find anything, but took 2 biopsies to check for microscopic colitis. Had a HIDA scan done this morning, should know the results within a few days. Side question: The back of my neck is really tender in one spot. It doesn't feel swollen, but could this be a lymph node? I don't have any head/chest cold symptoms, no mouth or oral symptoms either. 2 weeks ago my CBC was normal, and as you can tell, I'm an anxious person. What are the chances that this could be the first sign of lymphoma?
The spot is on the back of my neck, towards the left, below the hair line. It seems swollen today, and the area of skin is red and very tender.
It's not a raised spot like a pimple, it's more like swelling of my neck just below the hair line. The redness on my neck is about 2 inches across, and again, neck is very tender.
