    I also would like to add to this: my father had colon cancer.

    Have you had your gallbladder checked via HIDA scan? Sounds like it could be that

    I had gallbladder checked via ultrasound, CT scan, normal. A few doctors said my gallbladder is ok, and that it would not cause blood in stool, weight loss, severe chills.

    Gotcha. Well if the first colonoscopy didnít pick anything up was that before or after your had symptoms? If the colonoscopy was done when you were having these symptoms then i would Highly suspect cancer would have been found if that were the culprit

    Well, I thought so. But it could be an error: bad preparation, or anything else.

    Highly, highly doubtful. If you went in and they never you were having those issues they would have looked specifically for that. They want a second one to see if itís IBS or diverticulitis etc

    I know Itís hard not to worry, thatís where i currently am but just know if it were there, they wouldíve seen it and Iím sure they took biopsies which would have showed it as well
