Hello everyone, I've joined because my daughter is waiting for a diagnosis. Shes 17 and told me her problems 2 weeks ago, we contacted our GP immediately and everything has rushed forward since then. Within 5 days she'd done 2 stool samples, was rushed in for a colonoscopy (which found multiple lesions) and she had 5 biopsies taken.
The dr said he suspects colitis but we are waiting for results.
I have a couple of questions if anyone can help.
Can anyone tell me if the biopsies would confirm colitis or ulcerative colitis or chrones?? (I'm a stage 4 breast cancer patient so the only experience of biopsies I have is to confirm cancer)
Also, she takes paracetamol and buscopan daily as our gp told her a couple of years ago she has IBS.
Would the buscopan be helping now? Also is there anything I can ask our gp for to help her with pain? she gets a lot of tummy pain, pain in her hip joints and pain in her ribs.
Thankyou for any input you can offer, it's so hard to watch her suffering 😖
