It seems like no one cares to help or diagnose me. I am only 19 years old and have been suffering not knowing whats wrong with me for too long I don't know where to go or who to turn to. I have had rectal bleeding, mucus, pus in my stool for months. I have been to my family doctor who sent me to a gastroenologist who diagnosed me with "constipation" ok something I already knew. So he gave me a routine to try, laxatives, enemas, magnesium citrate. I seen blood on the toilet paper follow by blood in my stool a few days later. I noticed the blood AFTER taking the laxative and it was IN my stool not on the toilet paper so I went back to him today. He asked if i did EVERYTHING he said to do. NO I did not do the enema I took the magnesium citrate and the laxative. The laxative gave me diarrhea and pus, mucus, blood. He said well you haven't done everything that I asked. I told him I felt it was more serious than what is was WHILE IN TEARS at the doctors office. He said he cannot test me for anything until I follow his instructions and made me promise him I would do it. So here I am still with this horrible anxiety about cancer and I can't even get a definite YES OR NO ANSWER for. I am so upset, all I can do is cry, my mom doesn't want to hear my complaints anymore, the doctor doesn't even want to test me. I pray to God it isn't cancer.. but what if it is? Ive probably had it for a very long time now and NOW IM WAITING EVEN LONGER. I go for a "follow up" in 6 weeks. I feel I will be on my death bed before they can "diagnose" me. It will be too late for treatment or will not survive because of how late it will be. I don't know what to I am now depressed and can't enjoy life because I am in fear every second of the day.
