    I got my gastro test result and I got severe anxiety

    I had all these symptoms for almost 3 years ( diarrhea, stomach cramps, nausea, bad smell, fatique) and I went to my new doctor snd he ordered 25 tests for me. Most of my tests arrived with normal results my last 2 test results were not. One test showed grossly abnormal level of fecal fat found in stool . The other test showed slight inflammation in the body. Although my red and blood cells showed normal. I'm so scared that my results may mean cancer or cystic fybrosis because when I read on internet it indicates life threatening diseases. I have my next appointment with a gastroenterologist next week but this anxiety is killing me. I need to understand what high level of fecal fat can mean? What can I expect from this? I lost my peace , can't sleep, can't eat, can't do anything over this results and scared I might have cancer or cystic fybrosis based on internet information I read. I'd like to see your opinion. Thanks
