Can anyone help - I have had some issued over the last 18 months, blood in my stool, Weight Loss, Tiredness, Right handed stomach pain, Severe diarrhea ( 8-10 times a day) and nausea. I have had bloods which are all Ok bar low Folate levels & a Sigmoidoscopy which was ok. This led to a IBS diagnosis
I have been referred to Gastro but it is up to 9-10 months waiting list and i am a little worried that there is something more sinister going on over in my right side, where a sigmoidoscopy does not reach.
I guess my question is, can you have a clear sigmoidoscopy & still have a cancer or something further up your bowel? Is that possible?
