As I mentioned in my past posts, I have a sigmodiscopy scheduled for Wed. Jan 16th. I am just plain freaking out over it. I know it isn't a painful procedure, but I have a terrible fear of such things. I have had trouble sleeping all week, and I can't concentrate on anything. I don't want to have the procedure. My doc and I had no plans for any such thing, and then this one a**hole of a GI suggested it, and the next thing I know I have an appointment. I don't think I need it. I had a full scoping 4 years ago, and I recently had blood, urine, ultrasound, x-ray. All normal. I had the same thing when I was 11, and I had the scoping. It was h**l and everything was normal. I've just been crying and crying and I'm a nervous wreck because of this. Nothing could possibly be worth all this emotion trama. I wish I had never met with a GI. I was just accepting the fact that I have IBS, and learning to live with it, when I met this guy. Now I don't know what to do. Before meeting with him, I would have been perfectly content not to ever be scoped Now, however, I think I'd be afraid not to know that I don't have Crohn's. (that's what he wants to test for). The thing is I don't even have the symptoms of Crohn's!!! I don't have any bleeding, and Crohn's doesn't explain the constipated feeling. I don't know what to do. My stomach hurts so much from all this stress! I don't think I could emotionally handle the procedure, but I don't know if I could live with myself for not having it. I can't contact the GI. Tomorrow I think I'll call my GP and cancel the procedure. What are the risks of not discovering Crohn's? How would I know if things were really bad? or would I eventually just drop dead if it wasn't treated?I want to cry, but I can't, because all this stress has given me nose bleeds, and they start up if I cry. I'm scared and lonely and I don't think I can go through this procedure simply for emotional reasons. They'd have to completely knock me out. I had IBS when I was little, and this is the same problems, so I know that's what I have. I'm sorry to go on and on like this, but I'm just so sad. I wish I had never met this GI. I was perfectly certain I had IBS, and was content to try and help myself, and now my look on my stomach troubles will never be the same without having this procedure. I wish I could just go back in time and cancel the appointment and then I would be able to deal with my IBS, without this worry about other stuff. I want to cancel the procedure, but I'm afraid to. I just don't know what to do.Sorry for going on and on like this. You're all wonderful people for listening to me. Thanks.
