Back in October I started having abdominal pain and rectal bleeding. I ignored it for about a month thinking it would go away until it got horrific one night and was taken to hospital. At hospital they said it was probably my appendix. They removed my appendix but said it wasn't inflamed when they removed it. They then discharged me even though my symptoms were no better.
I was diagnosed with anaemia in February. I phoned my GP over the next few months as problems were getting worse but because of Covid, it wasn't possible to be seen. I eventually got a phone appointment last week with a new GP. She said that because both my dad and granddad had bowel cancer, I should have a faecal calprotectin test to see if there is any blood in my faeces.
I know that there is blood in my faeces because it's very much visible - there's A LOT of blood. The amount varies but sometimes there's more blood than anything else. I phoned up for the test results this morning and the receptionist said that they're normal so nothing further will be done. How can this be so?! I can see the blood really clearly!
I've been in pain for months now, I can't eat properly without bloating and pain, I'm bleeding all the time so have to wear sanitary pads not to stain my clothes - the doctor is just saying I'm completely fine.
Has anyone else experienced this? What do I do?
