My OH has had trouble getting GP's and so called specialists to take him seriously with problems in the gastric/abdominal area. Long story short it was suspected he had bowel cancer and he got a referral to be not even seen by the specialist and told it was something minor by a junior...without even looking at him or reading the referral notes. They didn't even get his name or age right.
Since then he has been passed back and former, has some internal investigations but due to very high amounts of pain they haven't been completed. I feel that the only option left is have a look inside by a diagnostic laparoscopy since colonoscopy is unsuccessful for completion with him and he has similar troubles with the inflated ct scan.
If this is undiagnosed cancer which it still could be as now has very swollen lymph glands, although I know there could be other things happening, then how do we get them to take seriously and get something done?? He has even been told that it's unlikely due to his age -late 30's, which we all know is rubbish!
