Phoebe..Hi..I'm from England, and just this afternoon ( 20th August 2009) I went to see my doctor because I had noticed blood in my stools and toilet bowl, for, oh, around I would say, 6 to 8 weeks.. not all the time, just on a few days..
Theres no pain and I havent lost any weight.. He examined me ( finger up my bottom) - it hurt ! then said there was 'nothing apparent' but he would arrange a colonoscopy at the hospital in about 2 weeks time ( I read on the note 'Urgent Referral')
Well..I came home and looked on the net and I found this site straight away with your notes, ( right from the beginning of 2005 ) and read all your notes and the kind replies, and well..
I just wondered HOW things went, as it seemed to stop after two pages.
How are you ? What was it ?
The last I heard, you were still waiting for a colonoscopy quite a while later ?
Hope things worked out for you..its just that I wondered. ?
kind regards to you and everyone in this situation..its abit worrying isnt it..
ps by the way I'm female and almost 62 - otherwise fit and active
