| | New here, and desparatly in need of advice.
Just a quick background. I am a 33 year old female. A few months back I noticed a little of blood in my stool. It wasn't that alarming, but a few weeks ago, there was an excessive amount of blood (bright red and dark red), along with pain and discomfort. I went to get a CT Scan. The CT scan did not show any blockage, but it showed an excessive amount of mesenteric lymph nodes, duodenal thickening, a focal ulcer in the second portion of the duodenem and there is scaring in the lingula.
I also have dropped about 20 pounds in 2 months with out changing my daily routine. I went to the Gastro Doctor and I am scheduled for an endoscopy and colonoscopy this Wednesday. I am very anxious and scared. I would greatly appreciate it if someone could give me any insight on what to expect after the procedure, and also how long both procedures will take. They are "putting me under" and that scares me the most. Thank you in advance.
