Perhaps the Wrong Section
In January I started with Diarrhoea
No blood, but one time it was red. I don't think it blood.
Two weeks ago on bed on phone wanted to break wind. It wasn't. I followed through.
Went to bathroom cleaned myself up.
Rang Drs at 8.00. Ten past eight they answered. Basically told them what I have mentioned above.
Can you get here for 9 am. (In50 mins time)
Got to the Dr. Told him what I'd been like for the last four months. He kept asking questions... From the answers I gave he genuinely showed concern.
I lay on the bed. Kept pressing my stomach.
It wasn't painful. Just uncomfortable.
I sat down again. He calmly said there is a 10 day wait for further investigation. I knew what it could be.
Then asked me to book a blood test within the next five days. I then left his office.
I was in there approximately 25 minutes.
Went to receptionist to ask for blood test.
You can have it now if you want? Go to room... I got a blood test. Fifteen minutes later I was on the bus
**I know the NHS has a lot of complaints.
But I could not fault them**
Now I could do with some advice please.
Since the above, I haven't gone to the toilet as much. Sometimes I go to the toilet and it's hard work. Other times it's like it was a few weeks ago.
I feel a fraud. My toilet habits are a lot better. But there is still traces of runs.
Should I ring them and cancel any further procedure.
I feel so bl**dy embarrassed because of the trouble I may have caused.
Folks please take my question seriously.
Although I feel a Pratt. Thank you
