Before my diagnosis my first symptoms were put down to IBS by myself and my GP. I was eventually diagnosed in A&E with stage 4. The BEAT strapline does not include IBS type symptoms or frequency of urination. Please can you let me know if your first symptoms were other that the BEAT as I am
going to look into campaigning for greater awareness. I know Una Crudden was misdiagnosed also as having IBS but I'm trying to include ladies whose GP suspected IBS but did the CA125 and or any other checks/scans/referrals etc.
I think if the comms we pick up in our GP practice included all the symptoms could save more lives with earlier diagnosis.
