Disappointing nurse advice!
I'm two and a half years post cancer surgery and had two further polyps removed at my one year colonoscopy. I recently started getting mucus again and yesterday bright red blood (same symptoms I had for cancer and which I was wrongly told were piles for years).
Just phoned the nurses to ask for my colonoscopy to be moved forward due to bleeding, and she suggested it was most likely piles if it was bright red blood!!!! Obviously I very firmly put her straight and told her this was what I was told for years when it was in fact a tumour, but I couldn't actually believe what I was hearing from the team who dealt with my cancer!!
She has agreed to try and move the scan forward and phone me back but I just needed to get my anger and frustration off my chest with people who will definitely understand. Thank you for letting me vent
