Colonoscopy in 12 hours!
Prep wasn't as bad as I assumed it'd be (judging by what others have said). The stuff I drank was pretty awful, but didn't "go" as much, or often, as I thought I would. I'm clearly cleaned out, though.
Anyways, I have my first ever colonoscopy tomorrow at 9:45 AM to find out why I've been having blood and mucus in my bowel movements along with increased frequency in defecating. No other symptoms. My GI wasn't really concerned, but obviously a colonoscopy is just about necessary and recommended any time someone is having bowel issues.
I am 27 years old and colon cancer does NOT run in my family. My father does have Colitis, though, which IS hereditary (my GI doc and nurse confirmed). I'm putting bets on inflammation of some sort, and I know I have some internal hemorrhoids, too.
