Hi, I'm new to this site. I've been suffering abdominal pain and loose stools for the last few years and have made regular trips to the gp who said they thought it was IBS so prescribed mebeverine and sent me away. My symptoms worsened and the pain is radiating to my lower back also and there are days where I am so nauseas. Anyway, after repeat trips to gp they referred me to a gynaecologist as I was describing a heavy feeling low down and pain. Gynaecologist referred me to gastro consultant as they wanted to rule out bowel issues. In march I had my first appointment and he ordered various stool samples and said he would write to me with results and any further action to be taken if any needed.
Anyway, I didn't hear from him and I phoned to chase up but still didn't hear anything so assumed all was fine. My pain has worsened the last 4 weeks and it's really starting to affect my daily life. So back to gp I went who gave me the results of the stool sample 6 months ago!!! This showed raised levels of faecal calprotectin which concerns me because at the time of sample my stomach actually wasn't too bad so I'm dreading what it is now!!! I'm now waiting to hear from consultant re another appointment but I'm getting myself really quite worked up about what this could be so any advice would be gratefully received. Thanks
