      hi thankyou for replying im just on edge waiting the doctor said it would be an urgent ultrasound but im still waiting i think with the pandemic going on its just getting delayed but its making me feel so anxious ive repeated a stool sample and handed that in yesterday i just hope i hear soon im more frustrated that this couldnt have been done sooner .. all my other doctor offered was a smear which was fine and normal blood tests but when i changed my doctor he said it has been reported that there has been blood in my urine a few times and with my bowels she didnt even offer a stool sample just told me it was ibs and left me its just the worst time this could happen i just need the ultrasound to i know hopefully what it is
