Hey thanks guys, for the variety of advice. I'm still thinking about it. It's booked for April 29th and part of this, I'm just freaking myself out. The last colonoscopy I had was April 2005, about 7 months after my last major episode. Prednisone helped out on that one though. Things were good by that scope time.
This time no prednisone hence the great length of time to get over this episode now. I'm still have my moments, I'd say it's about 60/40 D & blood right now, that's why I had this question.
I guess I could say it they must took a look, then just do that and don't take a piece of anything yet because of the action going on. And thanks for the pediatric endoscope mention, first I've heard of that.
And it's not a GI, it's a surgeon, in a little town like this. My GI last time was when I lived in BC, so I'm really divided on this.
