Resection this week and I am freaking out

Good evening everyone,
First of all, thank you to everyone who has already shared their stories. I have just spent some time reading through some of them.

Here's mine. This year I turned 50 so I went for a colonoscopy per my dr's recommendation. During that the dr found a small gold sized mass where the 2 intestines intersect. I then had to have a cat scan to confirm this and now I am scheduled to have a lap. resection this Wed.

Here's the thing - I do not or have not - had any symptoms. No pain, no bloating, no problems with any kinds of foods. I have had endometriosis in the past but that is under control now. I am being honest when I say I have never felt better (except for this anxiety!)

I am so freaked out by this whole thing. Has anyone else had this kind of experience?

Thanks for your help.

I think you have had your surgery. Hope all went well and you are on the road to recovery. Surgery is scary stuff. Now sure to give yourself the time to recover. So many people rush, and then relapse. Sending you positive thoughts.
