I am glad that you were able to see your dr about this. Try not to stress too much, I know easier said than done. Have you had a colonoscopy before? The test itself is a breeze, its the prep thats the killer, lol. I have crohns disease and have scopes done yearly and the prep is the worst part of the entire test. You know it could even be a cyst who knows we will have to wait and see.

Take care.....Susie
