Hey there. I'm new. Playing the waiting game. Background is this. Have had IBS all my life. About a year ago my symptoms got worse and this summer my bowel habits had changed...thin wormy poo/or slushie poo(sorry!) I even got a "squattie potty" to help me evacuate my bowels properly. In May/June I noticed my lower belly felt "pouchy". I assumed it was flab! In the past I had a c section/tummy tuck and a full hysterectomy.
I kept putting off seeing a doctor . Anyway I finally went around 3 weeks ago and the doc thought it might be a hernia...until she examined me. She decided on an urgent ultra sound..which showed nothing. So then did urgent referral to the local oncology unit. The consultant said there was definitely a mass that could be felt in my abdomen. I'm assuming that if nothing showed on the ultrasound in my abdomen, that they may be thinking its something in the bowel that's pushing up? Anyway I had a pelvic and abdominal CT scan today and go back in 2 weeks for the results.
If its something serious would they contact me sooner...or is 2 weeks normal? Thanks in advance. Rose
