I have been having bowel issues from Dec 17 and was diagnosed with piles. In between ive had epsiodes were i have had no symptoms so did brush all under the carpet.
From Nov 18 ive had quite feequent symptoms which include a feeling that im pressing in my rectum among blood and or orange mucus, and soft stools that are urgent and more than once a day with tummy, back and left sided pain. I can then go through some short periods of very little or no symptoms and i can miss a day of stool movements. This caused myself and GP to not push further investigation. But i never go a full week without some symptom so i ordered myself a private fecal occult test which has cane back at 10 today.
Today, ive had the loose stools, tummy pain, rectal pressing feeling and after fecal occult result i have booked a provate appointment for further investigation. Unfortunately, even private is 3 weeks away. I am beside myself with worry considering all symptoms began almost 2 years ago and have just gradually gotten worse.
Can anyone advise or help direct me in regards to symptoms? My overall symptoms are almost daily and worse from about Feb this year
thanks in advance
