First colonoscopy in two days

Posted , 1 user is following.

hi all,

im 35 and having my first colonoscopy in 2 days. ive been having intermittent rectal bleeding this year. ive had a sigmoidoscopy and they found source for bleeding- proctitis, many piles, fissure.. but i have just recovered from a few months of anemia (heavy periods) so they want to rule out the sinister things. terrified theyll find a tumor but now im equally scared its Ulcerative Colitis. i dont really have any of the other symptoms, but with the proctitis i just dont know.

any last words/ tips/ advice on colonoscopy prep or day of?
