A thank you I guess.
I have been on this website constantly now for about 2 weeks. And all the stories and posts have really helped.
About 2 years ago I had a pain in my left side, some days it was unbearable but a scan didn't show any stones.
Fast forward to current date, I have had pains on and off, my bowel movements are 8 or so times a day, sometimes only just making it. Other times feeling like it's coming out only for nothing to happen. Pain is now abdominal and lower back. Constantly gassy and painful.
Dr sent off stool sample and come back with blood in so now im waiting to see a bowel specialist. Approx 6 weeks. Its a strange feeling, I'm normally very laid back and if the worst happens then so be it kind of attitude. But the waiting has left me feeling anxious which isn't a feeling ive ever had. But reading posts is certainly helping. So thank you.
