Hey Guys,Sorry I was gone for so long. My cancer fears were getting the best of me, so I took the advice to stay away from the forums for a little while. I really appreciate all the support and reassurance you guys gave me. Anyway, I had a colonoscopy yesterday and finally got the reassurance I needed. The good news is that I definitely do not have cancer.The bad news is that my colon's two and a half times as long as it's supposed to be! ACK!The reason I have so much splenic flexure pain is because I have three splenic flexures, so there's bound to be a bubble in one or two of them at any given time. The treatment is pretty much the same as for IBS. I don't want surgery to remove half of my colon. Anyway, I'm doing a lot better emotionally and physically. The pain got a lot better after I got everything cleared out and had the reassurance that I didn't have anything seriously wrong.The anesthesia made me super-loopy; I think it's because it interacted with my anti-anxiety med (Buspar). I kind of embarrassed myself-- I woke up frantically asking the nurses where my daughter is, and then I proposed marriage to my husband of four years-- AFTER I flirted with the male GI nurse. Oh, jeez. I don't remember ANYTHING until after I got home.
