I was diagnosed with DD 4 yrs ago. It started whilst Ivwas on holiday in Florida with cramps (not only on left side) then mucus in feaces and then passed a clot of blood. That frightened me and went to ER. They were not sure of the problem but as the pain had gone after passing the clot (I don't know why) they advised me to see my GP when I got back to the UK. I had a colonoscopy which showed DD which had healed by itself no polyps were found and biopsy clear. On follow up he advised to just carry on with same diet ( and rightly or wrongly I have) and not to worry or fuss about seeds,nuts etc. I have had 2 flare ups (bloody mucus etc) in the past 4 years. Today I have had pain whilst straining to go to toilet and my poo has been stringy and mucusy (sorry for description) there may have been slight blood but not sure as I am a panicked! I am assuming this is a flare up and nothing else so am going on a liquid diet to see how it goes. As I am not a youngster I am worried it could be something else like cancer. How long does that take to develop? I do find these forums helpful so any advice would be appreciated.
