| | Doctor visit, very worried
I have had bloody stools recently, and my primary doc found blood in the rectum last week with an anoscope. I saw a gastroenterologist today who only did a digital rectal exam (neg/blood) and since the exam was so painful, wants to treat the area with analprep and wait 4 weeks for a colonoscopy. He says I probably have an anal fissure, but I told him I was currently having stomach cramps, too. The rectal pain woke me out of my sleep last night. I told him about my cancer concerns and he told me that cancer doesn't grow that much in a month. That really does not make me feel better. Any advice would be welcome.
