My blood test results..
« on: May 16, 2014, 08:12:29 AM »
I just got my blood tests results back (I got the blood tests as I've been having problems going to the loo and worrying about bowel cancer)
There was a bunch of test names.. can't remember them all. One was ESR which I believe is for inflammation? Full blood count. I guess everything one can get tested for with bowel/toilet issues.

Everything came back normal. I'm still waiting on an appointment for an endoscopy or something.. lol I need to pay attention. But this post is just a reassurance seeker I guess.. If I had cancer, would it have possibly shown on the blood results? I'm not anaemic apparently. And obviously the ESR/inflammation one came back normal. While I know I can't be 100% sure until I've had that extra examination, I just need some reassurance for now.

Digestive/intestinal problems are incredibly common and they usually are a result of something benign. Anxiety and high stress levels can cause disturbances as well. Having good blood work is definitely a good sign. I really wouldn't be concerned, you'll be fine.

Thanks greend. I'm gonna try not to worry. I'm CONVINCED I have some very advanced cancer that's gonna kill me in a few weeks, but if I did, it would surely show SOMETHING in blood tests.
