This is really embarassing, but I have a really personal concern I need to ask about. I have myself worked up into a frenzy again because it's exam time (Monday). It has nothing to do with the typical worry about "what if they find something", but that does still cross my mind. The problem is I'm now 65 years old (that's a good thing), and I have issues with loose stools from time to time (never know when or why). I'm always a wreck that something embarassing is going to happen during the exam. Of course, nerves can make this situation worse. I put myself on clear liquids the day before an exam and take Imodium the day of an exam to aleviate the worry.
Does anyone else have these worries and what do you do about it? My solution does give me some peace of mind, but I still hate the whole exam ordeal. And for some reason, I'm seeing a new gyn oncologist Monday. . .
