Apologies - long post. In March 2019 I started to develop some gastric problems - constipation, the runs, feeling as thou i had not finished, lost appetite, nausea. I put it down to a change in my medication for high BP and statin. Anyway this carried on for a few months, spoke to doctor who first of all suggested gastritis and gave me some meds, which did nothing. i did a blood poo test which was negative (and have done 2 more in the past 6 months, both negative).
I spoke to a different doctor who suggested a colonoscopy and endoscopy, however the waiting list is 18 months! so I decided to go private, made an appointment. Then typically all my symptoms disappeared! I cancelled scopes and looked forward to a healthy gut.
But now for the last 3 months I have experienced huge bloating of the stomach, pain (mild discomfort) in upper right abdomen and a constant gurgling stomach. I was recently put on gastro resist tablets, use gaviscon and rennie but get little relief. My bowel movement s are now totally normal.
I am booked for scopes but not for 6 weeks. Obviously my biggest fear is cancer.
I am otherwise a pretty fit 48yo male.
Thank you for your thoughts.
