Had the rigid sig today - internal haemorrhoids found and a conventional colonoscopy in about 6 weeks so have cancelled the virtual one.
I am wondering if hormonal factors are at work here as I am 51 - could bowel problems ever be caused by menopause?
Still experiencing gas at times but fortunately stools are not always pencil poop but often float - suppose that is the gas in them.
Hope others on the list are coping. It's naff really when you want to get on with your life and can't because of health problems.
At least if the consultant has said the colonoscopy will be in 6 weeks he can't be uduly worried about cancer implications so I should try not to be either. Off to Suffolk tomorrow for a week's bird watching and try to forget!
Take care all.
