Regarding my recent post. I done a poop sample due to green poop. One test came back last week as ‘clear’ of infection. Spoke to dr last week who said other test takes a little longer. Receptionist called me today and told me the second test came back as ‘abnormal’ obviously wouldn’t tell me what was wrong. Then told me the dr will book me in for an appointment as to what happens next when their appointment diary opens which won’t be for another 3 weeks. I’m guessing it can’t be that bad if they won’t get me in sooner right? Any advice would be great cos I’m super stressed😩 xx

    Hi @chlooooxxx I can understand why this would be on your mind, it's sometimes unsettling when our bodies aren't quite behaving in their normal way, but I'm glad to hear the ball is rolling now, and you've got an appointment on the cards. 

    Try not to dwell on any what ifs, or things outside of your control. I know that's difficult; but if you focus on looking after yourself every day, and on the things you enjoy doing, the wait will get a little easier and pass more quickly. 

    What do you like to do to relax, or to have fun?
