My husbands bowel screening test came back showing blood, so I did the second test and it's the same. Now they want him to have a colonoscopy. They could have done the pre assessment over the phone but I wanted an appointment so they can decide if he is fit for this procedure. I have an appointment on Thursday and plan to tell him once he is dressed on Thursday morning. I have been taking him to the toilet since the beginning of September and managed to do the test without him knowing. He has been leaning to the right since 11th September and they think it's been a vascular event. Still waiting for a hospital appointment with the stroke department. I have read that leaning could be constipation but since his bowel movements are very soft, I now wonder if this is related to the blood in the samples. He is 65 and has had Early Onset Alzheimer's for 4yrs. It is progressing quite quickly but he is out at different groups 5 days a week and I like to think that he is living well with Alzheimer's at the moment and worry what impact this is going to make on him if they find something. I am hoping for polyps that can be easily removed. Wonder now if I should have done the test?
