I'm new to this board and not sure if I should be here or not.
I have had problems with my stomach for best part of 4 years really.
i've had numerous tests done, including a hida scan for gall bladder.
All have come back negative, blood and stool tests too.
the 3 gastro's ive seen are all under the impression i have or had IBS as i fitted most of the symtoms.
But a month ago i had a diarreah attack whilst overseas, the stool was mucousy and had streaks of blood in it.
I have had diarreah on and off since getting home but no visible blood, just a little mucousy.
This past week i had a bad bout of diarreah again, and again with lots of mucous and blood streaked in the stool.
I took immodium and havent passed a stool for 4 days until today, when I did it was a bit more formed but very mucousy and had more blood in it, and a little more than the last time.
I'm going out of my mind thinking the worst, as im not familiar with Chrons or colitis.
I'm finally having a colonoscopy in January, I had one about
4 years ago. I should mention i have had a barium swallow test, abdo liver spleen kidney and ovarian scan in past 3 months which all came back normal.
I have had some weight loss too, but this I think is because i cannot eat large meals anymore and i can go two or three days without eating due to these horrible diarreah attacks.
Obviously I cant diagnose myself, but does anyone think the symptoms may be something like colitis and Chrons? I keep worrying it's bowel cancer, i'm so worried
thanks in advance.
