Diagnosed IBS probably 20 years ago.....
Its never been severe more problematic. My diet is not the best, so its a constant issue pretty much.
Also, I've had problems with piles. Few years ago had to have a minor op on them.
So occasionally, I've had some blood.
Last few weeks has been a lot worse for some reason. Lot more mucus and blood. More persistent diarrhea - been through a lot of imodium.
Im 52 now (I know age is a factor). I'm hoping its just an IBS flare up (diet even worse over xmas!) but I dunno. Got a friend with UC and she says its like this. Of course, I guess everyone thinks the big C.
Don't want to go to the GP, they see IBS and just fob me off.
I do have private health insurance so I'm tempted to ask for a referral so they can check it all out. If so, what would they do?
