    Hi Shirley,it's been over 4wks since my colonoscopy where they took biopsy`s and I haven't heard anything yet either.I have booked an appointment with doc next week to see if anything has gone to her!!

    It's a worry as you say.

      Hi Shirley,,sorry I took so long to reply I have been away!I have an appointment with my doctor next week so im hoping to get some results/feedback then.

      It is such a worry as you say as I still have the symptoms that prompted the colonoscopy and biopsys in the first place!!

      Hi Shirley,

      Being away didn't take my mind off as I'm still bleeding every time I go to the toilet sad

      Didn't have bleeding polyp`s but they took two biopsies during the colonoscopy which I have had no results for although they said I would hear in 2/3 weeks and it's now been 6wks!

      Will be asking my doc next wk to find out for me.

      Hi my birthday was just another day thankyou seems as we get older the less prezzies we get lol.??I don't think we will get a answer as we are ok. Do you live in the Midlands UK as wonder which hospital you went to.are you still with the problem as bleeding can still appear up to so many weeks?

      Hi Shirley,

      Dr has given me powder to loosen my stool,suppositeries and an anal cream!..all of which I have had before colonoscopy and they did nothing and thats why I was referred for one...Dr has now referred me for a scan and told me to phone the hospital to tell them my worries re continued symptoms.

      I plan to do this on monday but I feel that Im not being believed at how bad my bleeding is and also other symptoms of bloating,constipation,diarrhea not to mention severe pain some of the times when I try to go and the time it takes to do it!

      As I said to the doctor I know my body and something is very wrong even though the colonoscopy revealed nothing untoward.

      Dr also informed me that a colonoscopy can not see the whole of the bowel and perhaps I should have a sigmoid which shows a bit more!..

      Feeling somewhat confused now as to why I wasnt told this as I feel I need my bowels examined especially in the light of my symptoms and I thought this is why I was given a colonoscopy for. x

      oh dear heather carnt understand why you dident have a sigmiod that is the first part of your bowel that includes your anus and back passage ect.they should do that first then if things arnt fixed they do a full colon into the large bowel.seems back to front .did she have your results back from the biopsys.or not.if so why dident she tell you ? so sorry your still suffering and hope you get sorted soon x
