Hi ladies hope you are well, I've been for a sigmoidoscopy today to follow up some IBD symptoms that started back at Christmas. I have anaemia and very low iron which has come on suddenly I now take iron tablets to control it but I'm yet to have a follow up of bloods to see if I am on the right dosage. I also have a borderline underactive thyroid they won't give me any meds until this has been checked again which is next week.
A&E have wanted to investigate as I have had constant diarrhoea with pain my GP thought it was appendicitis thankfully it wasn't but they thought with my temperature anaemia and iron levels it could be crohns. So to today and they put it down to IBS they can't explain the anaemia and iron levels or why it was a sigmoidoscopy not a colonoscopy.
Has anyone had these referrals when being diagnosed with endo? I have a lap scheduled for July should I mention this to my surgeon? I'm so confused about it all!!
