Wow, you have had a lot to endure recently. I'm sorry that you got the news that its possible cancer, I can imagine how scary that is for you. I hope that the specialist can tell you that its not that and can be treated. I haven't personally had an analscope but from the name, it sounds like its similar to a colonoscopy but limited to the anal area and possibly rectum. They probably will take a biopsy. We have certain nerve endings that are more painful than others and I think that the closer you get to the rectum, the more you can feel the pain. Biopsies usually will cause a cramping sensation.
You can have reflux without having any pain. The actual burning doesn't affect people and many people do get surprised when they get an acid refulx/GERD dx. My reflux has been horrible lately and is caused by a relaxed esophagus but I don't get the regular heartburn as much as I get the regurgitation (thats horrible in itself). I hope the prevpac will help you with your bacteria problem so you don't get any ulcers from the H. Pylori.
I'm sorry that you haven't got a response. A lot of people that read posts are actually not members and cannot post until they become one (as I write this there are 121 guests and 12 members in HW). A lot of people also come to just read posts and some people are not comfortable yet to post. And then you have some that just don't have any words of wisdom for your situation because they don't have the experience with that problem. Also weekends are very slow and a lot of the regular members are M-F people in this forum. Be patient, I'm sure you will get some replies soon.
Take Care (and please don't feel you are alone, YOU ARE DEFINITELY NOT)
