I discovered bleeding when I went to the toilet, which was very frightening. This happened a few times so I made an appointment with my GP. I was referred for a colonoscopy.
My appointment was 8 days later - amazing, especially as I was very anxious. My procedure was carried out very professionally and I was very well looked after by everyone I came into contact with at the hospital.
I was told after the colonoscopy that some polyps had been removed but they looked pretty benign. Still waiting for the pathology results but am hugely reassured by what the doctor said at the time.
I am so grateful to have such a brilliant and caring GP, and to have access to such wonderful services so quickly.
