I finally had my Sigmoidoscopy last week and now waiting for the results of biopsy taken. On the screen, the examination showed area in the beginning which has turned red (dnt know how to explain it)..... the lining was red and there were patches which were bleeding and had mucus (this was something more than just hemorrhoids that my GI had initially thought) ... :-( so biopsy have been taken... further up it was fine. Since the Sigmoidoscopy was done, i m having pain while passing stools! and mucus/blood has increased a little.
M scared about the results, lately all the test results i m getting are upsetting- i tested positive of thyroid antibodies(immune disease) ... those antibodies are killing my thyroid glands :-(
Mucus & Blood in stools, Gas, Constipation sometimes - No D !
Guessing i have IBD, first doctor visit scheduled mid-December'08.
On no medication.
