So I've had the sigmoidoscopy today but there were some things that quizzed me and the nurses. They asked for my story before going in for the procedure and as I explained the A&E situation they were puzzled why I was referred for a sigmoidoscopy as it only sees part of the bowel. The guy who did the procedure said the same and couldn't explain the anaemia or the very low iron levels. He said potentially this could be my periods but there's been no significant change in them I have endometriosis so I think that was their fall to.
Anyways after the procedure they have given me a leaflet on IBS and sent me on my way. I have a couple of small haemorrhoids lower bowel is clear, pink and shiny. I know no news is good news but I can't get over the fact how confused they were when they heard my story.
Can anyone give any advice? Should I go back to my GP and request a full colonoscopy or give this diet sheet a try for possible IBS?
