    But my point to Misho is that my mum did NOT know until she had her medical last week... How would she know she had blood if she had never had a test before (which she hadn't). She had no symptoms of anything, this has all come as a huge shock.

    But I think maybe I misunderstood what she was trying to say.

    I hope it's all nothing to worry about and your mum is fine!

    Oh I'm sorry!

    I didn't mean to offend, I meant it more like this from my own experience...

    My beautiful dad had bowel cancer. For 2 years leading up to his diagnosis, he had a strange discharge and funny p00, but he chose to ignore it (coz of what it could have been, and ended up being).

    I didn't mean it to come across as being rude, just was more thinking of it from my own experience.

    My best friends mum bled a lot leading up to her own diagnosis, the blood was visible, not microscopic. That's what I meant.

    Honestly didn't mean to offend OP.

    If your mum went back home would her medical expenses be covered there? Would also have the sides bonus of your mum being there for her sick DH.

    Thanks for clarifying, I'm feeling a bit over sensitive at the moment as in so worried about her.

    But nope she's had no symptoms at all, and the only reason they found this was due to the urine test she had to have for her visa.

    I read the GP referral and it did say 'microscopic' or something similar.

    Medical in SA is free to an extent, but the public hospitals are atrocious. They don't even have blankets and sheets etc, let alone beds!

    Her hubby is in Singapore and that's where he had his surgery and he had to apparently pay for all his medical expenses as well. She is not entitled to anything there as she isn't a PR or a citizen.

    Worst case scenario is that she will have no choice but to go home, we simply cannot afford any major costs
