I had an annual rectal test with my physical that tested neg and also sent in stool sample which was neg. What about cologuard? Colonscopy for 2017.
Colonoscopy is best: Of the screening tests you have listed, colonoscopy is the only one that can also prevent colon cancer (by removal of precancerous lesions). If you have had one before and your next one is due in 2017, you do not need any further testing until then. This should hold true especially with what sounds like you had a negative fecal immunochemical test (FIT). Hope this helps! ...Read more

You may well have food sensitivities (most with gluten sensitivity don't have celiac) ;/or parasites- common ; not easy to diagnose. You might have overgrowth of unfriendly flora- again hard to diagnose. See my comment:. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

However, I am confident that your surgeon may have these readily available.

I've been stooling for the past 2 days very regularly. Should I get a check up or will this just pass by?
It depends...: I assume you mean that you are having diarrhea, or loose stools. If so, as long as you are able to drink enough to stay hydrated, are not having bloody diarrhea, and you are otherwise feeling well, you can certainly give it a few more days. If you are having high fevers, bloody diarrhea, persistent vomiting, or any other concerns, you should see a doctor. ...Read more
