Thanks for answering I had my colonoscopy yesterday and all is well with the large bowel but I have some areas of inflamation in the rectum tissue samples taken doctor says possible proctitis not ulcerated as yet. Results in 10 to 14 days. Hopefully some treatment after that as the pain is getting me down. I have been researching the condition online and what keeps coming up is gluten intolerence, which is funny as I have noticed recently that I bloat quite badly after certain cereals and white bread. I'll keep you posted.
