Well, I had my appt with the ob/gyn today and the dr. says the bleeding seems to be coming from fissure(s) from straining to go. He did a rectal exam and felt nothing and saw nothing. I do go to the GI dr. tomorrow, but I am really relieved. Dr. recommended KY jelly to ease BM if I feel constipated. He also swants me to schedule a mommogram (I'm 34) but had a great aunt with breast cancer. We talked a lot about hubby and he was very disturbed to hear of his misdiagnoses. Says he learned 40 yrs ago in med school that a young patient that suddenly present with Arthritis (hubby dx with Rhuem. Arthritis last yr) that is a RED FLAG and often means CANCER. How comes my OB/GYN seems to know more than the stupid family DR/ ER doctors, Arthritis DRs, etc....? I tell you it just really tears me up! I will be bakck later as I on my way out right now. Just wanted to update you all... I will be researching this thing about arthritis and cancer in young people. Anyone else ever run into this. Someday here I am going to be getting the word out to people about this stuff - some kind of awareness thing or something. If it saves one life this has not all be for nothing. Thanks all for your support! God Bless. Talk soon.
PS - Carmen - if you're reading this I got your email and will write a little later... :)Gotta go for now!
