Hi I am a 52 year old female. I have been experiencing bloating gas and some heartburn and indigestion off and on for several weeks. Over the counter laxatives and stool softeners and miralax minimally effective. My mother died of colon cancer at age 60. I had a colonoscopy 2 years ago and it was totally normal, no polyps. I was told to return in 5 years because of family history. I have read and been told colon cancer always starts as polyps which take several years to become cancerous. Wondering if another colonoscopy is indicated but really not wanting to do this again if not necessary. Possible gyn issues have been ruled out as the cause of symptoms. Any advice appreciated
