Hi am new here guys so please bear with me.
I am currently 29weeks pregnant and for the last 17 days have had constant diarrhoea up to 12 times a day, abdominal pain waking me in the night and the pain is always there just varies in intensity and blood in my stool.
My gp sent bloods off and a stool sample last Thursday and he said he would refer for a colonoscopy due to family history (nan has had bowel cancer and polyps, dad and brother have also had polyps) got my results today but not with the same gp and I was in tears when I walked out. She kept saying I don't fit the criteria for a urgent referral and even though I have had a few red markers on my bloods she said she wouldn't be concerned due to pregnancy. Now this frustrates me as I have had routine bloods 3 weeks prior and they were fine the only thing that has changed in the 3 weeks is my symptoms. I used to go regularly twice a day no problem now I have had accidents because I can't control it.
I asked what criteria I should meet for an urgent referral and when she looked I ticked 3 boxes out of 4 which meant she had to do it but stated "they may refuse this referral".
I just feel like was I right in pushing and asking questions? Should I even get checked now?
Feeling so low at the moment.
