Polyps 3 yrs ago now new symptoms - worried
I had my first colonoscopy 8 yrs ago and was fine, had another five years after that and had three polyps including at least one sessile (flat) polyp. I am supposed to have one at the three year mark which would be this coming year.
Recently though I have started to have the following symptoms:
loss of appetite
frequent bm's that range from large and relatively soft to very thin and long
blood on toilet tissue
having a bm without any "warning"
feeling like I need to have a bm and nothing happens
Should I be contacting the doc about moving up my colonoscopy? I am on the three year plan now because of the polyps and family history. I am a 46 y.o. female with a history of IBS and diverticulitis.
Any replies would be very appreciated,thanks!!
