I just spoke to the GI again who rang me on my mobile and told me to give it a few days and if things improve to cancel our apppintment on Saturday.
I live in England where health is FREE so private appointments like the one on Saturday would normall never be cancelled by a GI. My GI is also in the TOP 5 GI's list of the United Kingdom and he says he isn't worried at all.
He says the blood is probably where I have wiped too hard or a Hemmi and that black stools isn't necessarily Melena. Melena hs said is thick sticky patched almost like clots and not stools.
I think he was angry with me for overreacting, he was saying "look we don't even know if you have UC it could be infective colitis but are treating it as UC just in case".
I have been to the loo a couple of times since then and all I get are small black/dark brown stools but no visible blood or diarrhoea.
So I face an anxious few days.
