Hi everybody, Very rarely post as every time I have a question I always manage to find a posting where someone has answered a similar question (my question is at end of post). Glad the forum is here though for support. I am a 50 year old with ET - CALR and on usual Hydroxy and Aspirin for last year and a half. All going Ok apart from fatigue and tiredness. On Tues after going to loo I noticed a lot of blood which was a worry! Rang Clinic on Wed and they told me to contact GP in first instance which I did and got app't Thur. He did the usual check and referred me to Hospital for Colonoscopy. Thur afternoon the GP surgery called me to say they had app't booked at hospital on Mon afternoon and could I pop into surgery to pick up paperwork! How quick is that!!? I know the media like to moan about the NHS but I was amazed it was that quick as was expecting at least a few weeks wait. Now I'm worried they got me in so quick as they think it is serious, poor old NHS can't win! Hope it goes ok. Finally... if anyone has had an Colonoscopy I take it I will be ok to work the following day? I have a desk job so nothing too strenuous to do.
