Diagnosed diverticulosis at my last colonoscopy. With family hx of colon cancer am due again and it is scheduled for this coming Tues. Doctor said I need a double time slot for procedure as my colon is twisted. Also diagnosed with mega colon many years ago. After last colonoscopy also diagnosed with esophogitis (redness at the juncture) and mild gastroparisis. I am an anxious prone person to begin with. I woke today with anxiety going through the roof. My upper GI symptoms so much worse I guess with the anxiety. So scared with the upcoming colonoscopy. Does the diverticulosis make you more vulnerable to risks? Should you go on low residue diet?. My info sheet only warns of no corn and seeds one wk before. Ate banana and 3 fiber per cup cold cereal for breakfast today. It is Fri and colonoscopy is Tues. So scared about everything. Trying to control my mind but my body won't listen. Feeling so increasingly sick upper GI wise. How am I going to get the miralax prep down feeling like this? Should I be on low residue diet or will that cause constipation and make matters worse? Any help/insight so greatly appreciated.
