    Colonscopy

    Was due to have colonoscopy on 1st Feb, have now cancelled and rebooked for the 8th Feb.
    So stressed about having the procedure and the results for left sided stomach pains.
    Had colonoscopy 10 years ago.
    Been getting some chest pain again , had ecgs and blood test in August for same symptoms.
    I just canít manage my anxiety..

    Colonoscopy is an easy procedure, the worse part is the prep. If you have sedation (which should be offered), then it will be over and done with quickly.

    I have cancelled my colonoscopy yet again, because I have cancelled 3 times, the consultant has to review to see if I can rebook.
    I hate health anxiety and myself.
    Scared she won’t let me rebook and there is something wrong..

    Just being completely irrational and panicking.
    Consultant has advised colonoscopy , so hopefully will let me reschedule.

    I get the fear of medical stuff (managed to ignore a low-grade skin cancer for five years before seeing a GP), but surely this is one of those horrible things you just have to go through with? By postponing it, you're just prolonging the fear. This isn't something that'll go away.

    I genuinely have no clue, I'm sorry. Like I say, I avoid hospital visits myself ;0
