I'm very worried about pancreatic cancer, I've had symptoms that started last year which worried me and here I am again in a state of panic.
I have numerous visits to my gp all saying I'm fine, numerous blood tests that always come back fine.
I have seen consultant gastro, who asked me about symptoms and said it sounded like Ibs referred me for an abdominal ultrasound. I had this three weeks ago, and had consultant radiologist perform the scan, he asked what I was concerned about and told him what I was worried about. He paid particular attention to my pancreas, liver, spleen and kidneys, saying he had a clear view of pancreas and it was all ok. So moving on I have had some stomach issues, bowel move ments have been erratic and I had to do a stool sample which came back slightly elevated for calprotectin. This is unlike me so am worried as bowel changes can be linked to PC. My stools haven't been right for 4 weeks now, no change in colour, not oily but just loose. My Dr won't refer me for any other scans as they don't see the need to.
I haven't lost lots of weight, just a few pounds in last month.
Any help would be much appreciated.
