This is the 1st time ive posted as a patient, this is so unreal. I feel a bit f a wuss too as ive not yet been diagnosed yet, but this is a nightmare - ive been referred for a colonoscopy as i have had the runs for 5 weeks. Went to the docs thinking it might just be a bug or something & i was shocked that he shoved his fingers up my bum & has now referred me to hospital for this in only 2 weeks. Never been in hospital before, never been an 'ill' person!!!! IM ABSOLUTELY ******** myself - literally! HELP! As my poos are actually getting harder & bigger I'm wondering if i should go?? I'm 58, but are a fit runner, healthy and don't smoke or drink & eat lots of fruit & veg. I even ran the London Marathon for a cancer charity !
