Thanks for your enquiry. Sorry to hear you are going through such a stressful time. I would like to reassure you that you have taken all the correct measures so far, in the testing that has been done. Bleeding from the bowel at any age is something that should be followed up straight away. I am glad to hear your colonoscopy is only two weeks away, which will hopefully provide you with a more definitive answer. In the meantime, try not to worry too much and be reassured that you have done everything you can do at this stage.
Please feel free to contact me again if you need any advice, or if you would like to let me know your results.
