newbe here wanting to introduce myself and seek some advise.
I am Conor, 28 years old and a father of 1. I am happly married.
I have some question prehaps some of you guys may be able to answer?
This time last year, I went to see a GI doc due to some bleeding from the anas.I had no pain then and was feeling totally fine, all accept the bleeding. He did a Digital inspection along with a flexiable Sigmond and he suggested that he could see an Anal Fisser and some inflammation, but nothing to worry about.
GREAT i thought! But, come 9 weeks ago, the flood gates opened up. I was getting maybe 10 boughts of Diarehha, along with constipation and my stomach pains where unreal at times. Went to the GP and he suggested IBS. Excellent, not to bad I thoyught1 But then, about six weeks ago, the bleeding started pretty heavily. Every bowl movement was mixed with blood. Sometime, blood was all that would come out of the bowel movement. I have been in A& E (ER) on two seperate occasion for this,
I went back to my GP and he has suggested because of the blood and the joint pain, and the blisters on my tounge and gums, stomach pain, Diarreha and constipation, he is pretty sure that I have chrons.
I am going for a Colonoscopy and an X-ray on the 13/11/08 to see what they can find. I know the bleeding is nothing to do with an anal fisser as this has been confirmed by two a&e docs along with my own gp.
First of, does this sound like chrons to any of you guys? And secondly, should my docotr have picked it up last year when checking on the flex sigmond? After all, there was bleeding and he reported inflammation.
Also, what can I expect froma colonscopy? (sp)
Many Thanks for your kind advise in advance.
