Age certainly seems to be bowling me a few curved balls over these last few years as I have Acid Reflux accompanied with a Hiatal Hernia and now it seems that I may be suffering from this illness.
In the process of determining whether I am or not this week I was fast tracked to attend my local hospital in case it is Cancer.
I was only given the appointment via the telephone on the morning of my appointment and that is relevant to the question I want to ask.
Over the Christmas holiday I noticed blood on the toilet tissue every time I went to the toilet and this continued for seven days hence my GP fast tracking me.
When I saw the hospital doctor after asking me some questions he decided to carry out a physical examination of my rear end.
He initially inserted his gloved finger in my anus and said he could not feel any problems and then decided to insert a camera probe also into my anus.Both an embarrassing and painful procedure.Thankfully he said again everything looked ok. So my question is given I had not refrained from eating all day and he did not give me an enaema how on earth could he see whether I had any problem as what he was examining would not have been clear. Can I trust his opinion or should I seek further advice.
