I have had IBS for a number of years - controlled by diet. However, since last summer things have got worse - I had a gastroscopy in Feb - the only issue was a hiatus hernia.
However, things did'nt improve so I provided blood and stool samples about a month ago. Blood was fine but GP stated they had subjected my stool to a FIT test - they said it was 57 ( anything above 50 is flagged up but I have no idea what the numbers mean) other than there was blood in the stool.
So now I am waiting for a colonoscopy - what's the betting my appointment is when I am on holiday? Fingers crossed it is'nt.
