Thanks Judy. When I went in for my colonoscopy, it was at my request, I just called the doctor and said I had bleeding and that I wanted a colonoscopy and he ordered it. I suspected something simple like internal hem. That is probably why I never had the blood or stool testing done. I skipped right to the scope. However, now I am wondering if my doctor is being thorough enough. Do you think bloodwork and stool samples should have been done? Just curious, any advice will help. Bellski
