I think you should see a gastro-enterologist ( see easyinfo.co.za under medical). Why are you scared of the colonoscopy? They put you under anaesthetic, and the worst part is only not to eat for 24 hours before and to take the laxatives to clean the bowel - it is not sore, you don't know when they are doing it, and for us doctors its a wonderful examination because you can see exactly what the problem is and know exactly what to do to rectify it. You should not have undigested food in the stool normally. Tell me if there is anything else that scares you about the examination?
