Colon cancer

I haven't been here in quite awhile. I had my TAH BSO a little over a year ago. I had a colonoscopy a year before that. They found three polyps and removed them. They were benign, but of course that does not mean anything when it comes to colon problems (cancer can develop from benign-read it). Anyway, here is my problem. This may be a little graphic, so please forgive me.

I normally have a bowel movement twice a week (normally). In the past six months, ehich has gotten progressively worse, I am now up to at least three to four times a day. It hurts really bad, makes me cry. It is not hard, but soft (not diaherra). I feel like I am pushing as if I am constipated. Anyway, I finally got ahold of someone on my real father's side of the family to get medical history. Now get this! My grandfather died from colon cancer. My grandmother had 8 inches removed due to colon cancer and a breast removed. My uncle has had ten polyps removed two years ago. I finally went into my family physician. All he did after listening to everything I had to say, he felt my stomach and immediately set up an appointment for a gastrinologist (spelling?). He ran several blood tests. I do not have an infection in my blood. My CRP (C-something-protein) was extremely low, which I was told is ok. My white blood count was low but still in the number bracket for "ok". My appointment was set for July 18th. They called me today and want me in there tomorrow. I have lost weight. Went from 152 lbs to 137lbs in a month. I get sick, major nausea, everytime I eat or drink. I am beginning to get sharp stabbing pains in me lower sides and abdomen. I have a constant feeling that I have to go to the restroom. Today when I walked, I had severe cramping. And last but definitely not least (have three chids under 11), I am tired all the time. I could lay down and sleep all day.

I know most of this is venting, but I could really use some feedback from anyone who has experienced this or anything similar. Has anyone had colon cancer? I have researched colon cancer, Crohn's disease, colitis, and IBS. I hate to say this, but I have all the symptoms of the first listed. I have my church praying for me. I have been praying. My mom is worried and apparently the DRs are if they are rushing to get me in.

Just pray for me. God will be with me. =)
