Only recently joined this site after experiencing real get upset - I have now been to my local GP who has finally referred me to have a colonoscopy, something I have been requesting - going private to speed up the investigation cant wait on the NHS.
Even though I was informed I had IBS over 4 years ago I have never had a colonoscopy but my wife who has ulcerative colitis, her consultant said I should have one just to check what type I have. Is it normal to have a colonoscopy to determine if it is IBS ? Because the only thing they did on my first consultation was an ultrasound and blood tests.
I'm just hoping that the current episode is stress related and nothing more serious !!
