I went for a colonoscopy in May, I can't emphasise enough how scared I was, I even considered cancelling. However, I went ahead, I found it daunting and vowed I would never go through the experience again. Worse, was to come, they found rectal cancer. Radiotherapy treatment followed swiftly, and surgery soon after. I was discharged from hospital two weeks ago, and have just had a follow up appointment. I have the all clear, no more cancer, and no further treatment. I hated the colonoscopy, but this was the only way to detect early cancer. I say to anyone who is about to go through the same, just go for it, it could save your life! I have to have another colonoscopy in a years time, not a prospect I am looking forward to, but if it detects any nasties that can be dealt with early, then I will do it. I really hope my story will help anyone with the same fears.
