Hello, my first post here! I’ve been suffering with IBS-D for 5 months and it’s really getting me down. I’ve had a few bloods tests and sent in a few stool samples but they’ve all been normal. I saw a GP before Christmas who said that he would refer me for another blood test and also requested another stool sample but if nothing was found I would be referred for a colonoscopy or some other form of scan. Everything came back normal so I’ve been back tonight and saw a different GP this time. He said that I would only be referred for a scan if any of my test results showed any abnormalities and the scan would simply verify it.
I just wondered which is correct? Have any of you been referred for a scan due to abnormalities? Or have you been referred due to still not having any answers?
I really appreciate any advice or information you can give! Thank you!
