newbie ; after 18 months of stomach pain , loose stools up to ten times a day &blood& mucus I finally went fir my flexi sig today - I asked for sedation and the pain was so hurrendous they had to stop - dr stated slit of inflammation though only got half way to where he needed ... I'm distraught I've waited so long and still have no answers . My dads in recovery from stage 3 bowel cancer so this is hard anyway - this effecting my life greatly and after 3 weeks in a new job it's become embarrassing that I'm in the toilet so much . where do I go from here ? my consultant suggested it could be crohns they did manage to take 2 biopsies today but now a 3 week wait for those results .. I'm an outgoing person but this is really knocking my confidence and self esteem and I'm feeling very depressed . any advice ?
