Thank you Harry for the reply. This problem has been something that has been weighing on my mind and of course I have thought about all of the worse case scenarios, but I know a doctor's visit is the only thing that will ease my mind. I am petrified though! Can you or anyone else out there tell me what I should expect from the doctor? I have done research and it seems like a sigmoidoscopy would probably be in order, but the thought of this scares me. I know I'm a big baby! Can this procedure be done with a sedative? Any information to help me understand what I may have to go through would be appreciated. Thank you all for listening!
