Im a fairly healthy 46yr old man who does not smoke but probably drinks a little more than I should. No family history of bowel cancer.
My bowel issues started in 2018 ...... loose stool and blood, and emergency toilet breaks after food. I was sent for a colonoscopy and it was all clear apart from hemorrhoid's. The Dr put this down to IBS or Gastrocolic reflex.
Over the last 4 months I have had continuous loose stools, usually 1-2 hrs after consuming food. I have also had a bloated stomach and wind from both ends. Occasional stomach cramps which generally eases after passing a stool. I understand these do sound like IBS symptoms but to be constant for 4 months does not seem normal?
My Dr has performed all blood tests and stool tests which have all been negative, she finally referred me to specialist, however the wait is around 6 months as she does not class this as a priority.
I also has a CT scan in February 2020 last year for my abdomen and pelvis, reassuringly it showed no issues with both bowels etc.
It would be nice to hear from someone who may have experienced the same issues for a prolonged period of time.
