Exclamation Help - Cannot get colonoscopy!!

Hi guys,
Really hoping someone can help.me! I have been trying for sometime to get my doc to agree to a colonoscopy. I have experienced loose bloody stools on and off for over 4 years and have been visiting docs for approx 2 years.
I have been tested for many diff things eg colitis, chromes IBS etc.
Eventually, my doc reffered me for flexible sygmioscopy but nothing was found.
My gastroenterologist now does mot seemed concerned at all even though my bleeding is increasing. He says due to my age 23 and the fact I am not losing weight he does not feel it is necessary. However, I am concerned. I am not a hypercpndriac and would like to believe nothing is wrong but I know people who have has this condition and displayed hardly any weight loss/symptoms.
Please help me as I have been persistent with the doc as poss but I no longer know what to do!!!!
Thanks guys,
Rhe

Perhaps you should go to a different GI doctor. You can request a copy of your records to take with you or have sent to the new doctor. Good luck
