Have watched the board for while but never posted before. Diagnosed CD in 1989 during surgery for what started as hysterectomy, ended up as bowel resection. Have had second bowel resection 3 years ago. Always had loose bowels and the "normal CD symptoms" ie sickness, fatigue, joint pain and not forgetting "the runs". Over last couple of weeks been passing spots of blood and have lower abdominal pain. Seen my consultant and colonoscopy being scheduled. All fine with this - what put the wind up is that according to specialist CD patients are more at risk of bowel cancer!! Wondered if anyone else had heard this??? thanks for letting me vent!!
