My thoughts exactly. If sigmoid shows a need for hospitalization - why are they waiting? When I had my sigmoid and doc gave me the prednisone - my NP told me to start it as soon as possible - not to wait even two days - it got worse before I could get the prednisone - more bleeding, etc. I know you are in the UK so possibly they do things differently. I would probably be in emergency and asking for my doctor.
Sure hope you get the help you need - FAST!! INSIST!!
