Hope they can get a result.
OH had that done a few weeks back but they couldn't get far enough because of adhesions from previous surgery.
So had an MRI scan a fortnight ago and got the result today: inconclusive between diverticulitis and bowel cancer.
So will have yet another consultation, maybe for a biopsy.
Started in November, so five months on and no further forward.
Best wishes for you.

I am pleased for you that there was no cancer present Joyce, that is always the worry, so one worry less for you. Let's hope that the next tests show why you are so tired. How nice of your doctors wife to be concerned.

Suzanne Report 4 Apr 2013 21:58

hello dutch

i was quite alarmed by your last post, you say you have no iron at all in your blood?

i think maybe you have misunderstood your doctor, if you had no iron in your blood at all ,you would be in a critical condition in hos and not able to post on genes,maybe you should have another talk with him :-)
