Partial only due to inability to cover observation requirements. Then a CT scan which showed nothing untoward apparently.
I seem to have got confused. Please advise.
well there are a number of things that need to be ruled out here
important is colonoscopy at your age
if you cannot do a full colonoscopy then discuss with your doctor about doing a capsule endoscopy
in this a tiny camera like a medicine capsule is swallowed and this takes pictures inside thus fulfilling the objectives of a colonoscopy
other things to rule out are:
IBS or irritable bowel syndrome
Inflammatory bowed disease like Crohn's and Ulcerative colitis
bacterial infection like C. Difficle
Parasites like shigella
all these need to be ruled out
discuss this with your doctor
these are the differential diagnoses for your condition and discussing them with your doctor will help to get an informed discussion
do you have any further questions?
