bowel problem blood tests etc
hello, i'm in the uk just found this website , hope to find some advice.
just beforevchristmas i went to hospital for a consultation ( need hip replacement). the following day i got severe abdominal cramps and i was a bit alarmed to see blood in the bowl, but as our hospitals were experiecing an outbreak of the winter vomiting virus i thought it may have been that, especially as i became ill 24 hr after being at the hospital.
I went to see my doctor today and he said he didn't think it was a virus .
I have got to have blood tests and go back for the results.
this has me a bit worried. i hope it won't be anything sinister.
the bleeding lasted about 3 days and it just went away no pain or problems since.
can anyone tell me what the blood tests are for & can offer any comment or advice. having a bad day!
