I would be potentially dangerous to not get an exam in a timely way.
In the united states, you can not "proceed with a colonoscopy". One must have a referral.
In fact, we don't even know if you have already had one or not.
You need to first see a family practice doctor or internal medicine specialist.
This will rule out the more acute problems, check the stool for blood and so on.
This will prevent danger from missing an acute problem brewing.
