I have had soft/loose stools for years with off and on diarrhea. I had a really bad bout of it and in the time frame tried to give blood. One day it was 12.2 which is too low to give so I tried it again a few days later and it was 10.2. I rushed to my dr and he did blood work which came back with a high white cell count and an even lower blood count. He said it was probably infection and did a stool culture too.
The results of the stool culture were all negative so he cancelled the antibiotics and ordered a CT scan for next week. I had asked him if he thought I have cancer and he said he did not think so as he thought it was an infection , that that was the bottom of the list of the things he is looking for. I have OCD and anxiety which is now completely triggered and I am terrified that I have cancer. Every little thing I also have is now magnified in my mind and indicative of cancer ( like my mouth and throat always being dry) because I have been doing the think you should not and been googling my symptoms. I can't relax or calm down. Has anyone have had these types of medical issues. Also, suggestions on how to calm down would be helpful
