Hi I know some of you are away at the moment but looking for some advice here. I had a ct scan in April which was stable no new disease. To my mind ct scan shows the pelvis, abdomen and bowel. So I attended gp end of May with sinus issues and just mentioned that my bum was irritated and I felt I had piles. God knows what my insides are like after chemo combos etc and the Avastin. So hedid a check and said I had blood and I would have to have a colonoscopy. So he prescribed pessaries which have done the trick, no further irritation maybe a little a few days after Avastin. So today, got an apt for a scope in the post, I have had no consultation with a gastro as yet. I am back to the onc on August the 10th and I feel clinically well and the pessaries worked. I was aghast at the idea of getting the apt without seeing the gastro. I cannot get on to the section who sent out this apt. I am not sure if I have to come off the Avastin for this procedure but will sort that when I see the onc . I am hoping that he will agree with me that it isnt necessary but then they like to dot their i"s and cross their t"s. I know they have to be sure but really if ct scan shows no disease spread to bowel isnt that enough for them?
