Ok so just going to cut to the chase, I’ve been having a scare for a while now that I’ve had colon cancer. As some of you may know, I have health anxiety. I haven’t pooped right since last Saturday, went to the doctor Monday and they said that it’s probably just gastroenteritis and they gave me prescription antibiotics. Bowels have gotten better. I did stool cards to check for blood in my stools and I had blood in my stool that Monday I went to the doctor and Tuesday and Wednesday cards did not. Ok so that tells me that the antibiotics were working. They did a blood test twice and everything was good there. No anemia or low/high blood cells. I had a panic attack Thursday night and I thought I was constipated, took 2 500mg laxatives and had diarrhea 2 hours later. I have felt constipated lately. I’m just freaking out bc my anxiety doesn’t help with any of this. Had blood ON stool last Saturday when all this started. I was thinking if it was cancer then it’d show up on my two blood test, featuring anemia and such. I woke up with nausea this morning but haven’t thrown up. Been having random abdominal pains, nothing major though. Btw I have been diagnosed with carcinophobia as well. What do you guys think? Thanks.
