Question: My digital pelvic exam
|christie99 - Tue Mar 28, 2006 11:10 am||
did not go as my doctor expected. He was not able to penetrate as he wanted and tried again with no better results.
My question is this. Could an obstruction there be anything other than rectal cancer like inside hemorhroids or something?
I went there due to periodic rectal bleeding and have had a feeling of not being done with a bm if that makes any sense. I am scheduled for a colonoscopy this coming Monday and I am worried sick. I am amost 60 years old. Had my last colonoscopy 9 years ago.

I am sorry. I meant to say rectal exam when posting my message. Forgive me. I am stressed over all this.
