Yup physician heal thyself! You sound very grounded Claire and you know what you have to do, you are spot on, just be mindful.

I think we're all the same Claire! I post on here and advise people and then do something silly myself. After an op  a few months ago I was still getting pain and feeling very fed up and down..... phoned the nurses here about it and they said, "Alison you are still taking your painkillers aren't you?"....... Doh! How stupid did I feel! We live and learn!

Your job sounds very interesting, will keep your mind off your own problems for some of the time!

Oh i work with people with learning disabilities, we work a lot with capacity and with best interests. I was asking advice tonight of the lovely Alison via Facebook tonight myself and i know what i would tell someone else but somehow in your own head it isn't quite the same!

Hi, in answer to Claire's question, a clear faecal occult blood test and blood test don't guarantee that you don't have bowel cancer, and that's why we recommend that if your symptoms persist you do need to keep going back to the GP, as Alison and Hazel have suggested.

Regards,
Louisa
