I've have always had some digestive issues, but recently I noticed an increase in gas/bloating, consipation, small stools, and some rectal bleeding.  Around 5 years ago I did have similar issues and had a colonoscopy and a endoscopy which showed a few polyps and the bleeding was from internal hemorrohoids.  I am 43 with no family history of colon cancer.  I am going to see a GI today and insist on another colonoscopy and a endoscopy. I went to my GP a few weeks ago and he wanted me to start a probiotic and take Miralax and if the issue did not go away in a few weeks to contact a GI (no bleeding then.) It's weird, I am feeling better today, but I am still going to insist on a colonoscopy and a endoscopy.  I guess what I am looking for is some statistics and experience sharing from experienced people of what I may be facing.

 

Thanks
