Hi going mad, oddly enough i'm 61 and have had bowel issues for a long time,and my GP thought I had bowel cancer after tests and horrible hospital visits.Maybe its to do with our age group,but how much can a person take before constant meltdowns!!My GP supported me a lot, organize the tests, they are embarising but lots of both men and women go thru this. Stress is always a pyhsical offset to already existing issues, even if i eat or drink some things it reacts, get the tests done, find someone to get you thru your worries. I'm far from perfect , but I got clear feedback to get thru it all.
What could be worse than not knowing, there is help. Take care and get back to me if you want.
