Hi just looking for reassurance really.
Been having cramping and alternate bouts od diarrhea and constipation since Sept. Blood tests and pelvic ultrasound showed up nothing but a mild bacteria infection requiring an antibiotic. Also prescribed colofac which hugely helped with the symptoms.
Last week was a very stressful one for me and diarrhea returned. Colofac helped but made me constipated. Woke up with bad cramp and constipation yesterday morning which turned to diarrhea. Later noticed some bright red blood in the diarrhea and went to the doctors.
She thinks it's ibs and also felt what she thinks is an internal haemorrhoid (which the constipation could have caused to bleed).
However because I'm over 50 guidelines say she should send me for colonoscopy. She stressed it was just a precaution, will give me peace of mind etc but have been go ogling and can't stop worrying about colon cancer.
Anyone any words of advice?
