    have you been offered a CT scan.

    what are the medics telling you.

    dont let them fob you off with an ibs diagnosis.

    i am 3 days post polypectomy.

    i too couldnt get a diagnosis.

    i had lots of tests and the only thing they saw was a bunch of fibroids.

    one of these fibroids turned out to be a polyp.

    depending on their location you could get them pressing on various patrs of your digestive system and your plumbing.

    i thought maybe i had an ovarian cyst but CT said no. maybe you had one that ruptured.

    whats happening now since the bleed.

    have you got someone gobby who can fight from your corner.?

    i know how you get to the point you havent got the energy to make a fuss.

    i cant understand why your gp isnt referring you to a gyneacologist. be insistant.

    its so frustrating when no one takes you serious.

    at least get a blood test. the results can show inflammation inside you.

    everything takes so long these days as the health authorities are so overloaded.

    i wish you well.

    lets know about your road to recovery.
