Ok at the start of March I got sick, I had a fever, constipation, stomach pain, nausea and vomited once. At the end of the week I went to the Dr. and she gave me a shot to get rid of the fever and Cipro. The fever went away but I was still having stomach pains and was very gassy so I purchased some home test kits to check for blood in the stool. All of the patches came out negative except for one but later I concluded that was because of the water since even a clean bowl would show up positive. That following week I went and had some blood work done and I asked for professional kit to test for blood in the stool. At this time I had asked the Dr. to schedule me an appointment with a specialist on March 25th. When I returned the stool sample I was told my blood work came out normal. March 25th came and I went to the specialist and at that time I learned my stool results came back positive for blood. The nurse told me I should have a colonoscopy and endoscopy just to be safe. So two days later (I got in early because someone canceled an appointment) I had both done and the results came back fine. Dr. said I was a healthy 22 year old yet I think he told my mom the reason for the blood in stool was due to hemorrhoids (I do have the **s itch every once in a while :o ). I still have light stomach pain that come every now and then right around my belly button area and underneath my belly flap (yeah I'm fat). The pain will sometimes increase when I eat. I'm still gassy as ***l too. I'm not to sure what to do, should I continue to spend money on more test and ask for a ultrasound and barium X-Ray to be performed or just wait this thing out? My dad does have a round of ulcer medicine he didn't use so I might give that a try too.
You see I have a fear (more like a phobia) of cancer and I thought I had some sort of combo colon and stomach cancer at the same time. The specialist told me I did not have cancer (looked at me like I was paranoid) and then sure enough the scopes showed nothing. Now I find myself looking up small intestine cancer on google and then I make myself sad. I realize how many panic attacks I have about cancer, why must I be freaking out so bad about this stuff when I'm 22? :(
