  1. hi davide....my reply was not to suggest you get tested but more to see if your area had a health line where you could call to get advice and info re: coronavirus which may ease your mind
  2. davide...is there a health links line you can call for advice? a place set up in your community to give advice and answer questions about the virus? thats how we fo8und out we should get tested.....they will be able to answer your questions address your concerns.
  3. my wife and I got our results....we are both negative 🙂
  4. apparently we will get our results today....as of right now we have not been told we have it....social distancing is very important...it's not enjoyable but it will help stop the spread....grocery stores are the same here...very hard to find some things
  5. hi davide....we both feel like we have a cold...sniffles, mild cough, scratchy throat, my wife has a headache....we have been told to take tylenol if necessary...i also take dayquil and nyquil...
  6. social isolation (quarantine) is the best way to prevent the spread of this....we got back from Mexico on Friday...we got colds so we had to get tested....we are waiting for our results now and are in quarantine for at least 14 days....as a person with HA this is really affecting me....
  7. it's going to be a hard 5 week wait for the scope...still in pain, still having bm's that seem to be abnormal shape, calibre etc.....so tired of all this
  8. ty Bobnnat, Gilly and Ellebel....i really appreciate the support...I got the letter today...my scope is Nov 12th....i'm going to try very hard to stay calm until this is done....I'll also remind myself of all you have said, as you know HA isnt a very logical disorder so it's a struggle to listen to logical information....
  9. thank you Sallyhart.....the waiting is very hard....the fact it's taking so long to hear about a test date probably means the GI isn't overly concerned...I wish I could say the same...I've read studies that showed there is a pretty good percentage of people who had clear scopes yet 3-4 years later were found to have colon cancer....this fact and all the symptoms i'm having are making it very hard for me to stay calm about this.....I'm a mess, pretty emotional and scared all the time these days
  10. Hi...it's been a while since I posted, but here I am again. Once again its a colon cancer fear. It all started a couple of months ago...pain in my left side and lower abdomen. Then it seemed I started to get a bit constipated. I saw my new dr and he sent me for a ct to check my kidney. The results showed my kidney was fine, there also didn't appear to be any issues in my abdomen. Well it continued and didnt get any better so he sent me to a GI. I saw him 3 weeks ago. He went over everything and said he doesnt think there is anything serious, but, he will do a colonoscopy. I'm currently waiting for an appointment date. The pain continues, almost like a constipation type pain, i rarely get a strong urge for a BM anymore. TMI but when i go to the bathroom, the output doesnt seem to match the input and it seems narrower and smaller than usual. I had a scope done 3 1/2 years ago and it was clear except for some diverticulosis on the left side. I'm very scared and fear that a tumour has grown on the left side and is causing the pain and bathroom issues. I'm going crazy waiting to find out when I'll go for the scope. I worry that by the time I go for the test it will be too late and any cancer that is there will have spread to point that is beyond help. Sorry for going on, but I'm really really scared.
  11. if you ever want to talk Gary let me know...we can use the chatroom.....i really wish it got more use....better for immediate conversations rather than waiting for the forum
  12. i hear you Gary. I have suffered with HA off and on since I was 27. It is not an easy disorder to get over. Holls and Bobnnat have helped me out quite a few times over the past few years. I have always sought out and welcomed their advice
  13. hi Gary, I know exactly how you feel. I'm going through the same fear you are right now. I'm 56 and am having mild abdominal pain and flatter stools. Having said that, you have been tested and seen a gastro dr...I believe you are going to be fine. You've had some great responses fro Bobnnat, Holls and Walking.....you may want to consider therapy for your HA, it may be quite helpful. Try to keep in mind what your gastro told you and believe what you were told, trust me I know how hard that is, but you need to keep convincing yourself. Take care Gary....and I hope you can get a handle on your anxiety
  14. after gallbladder removal you will have looser stools for a while....the bile from your liver goes directly into the intestine now instead of being stored in the gallbladder since it of course isnt there anymore...you'll need to cut back on fatty foods for a while. I'm speaking from experience, I had my gallbladder removed back in 2008. It took a few weeks to get back to normal.
  15. this is very good news Diane...very happy for you
