Blogger Constance Hall has revealed she suffers from an inflammatory bowel disease called ulcerative colitis.
The Perth mother of four thanked her followers for their support after undergoing a colonoscopy and health check.
“I just wanna say a big thanks to everyone who messaged me yesterday hoping that I was ok after my colonoscopy,” she wrote on Facebook.
“I have an inflamed bowel disease Ulcerative Colitis that makes my bowels bleed and gives me the literal shits and can progress to something more serious like Bowel Cancer.”
The 32-year-old said her symptoms changed recently and doctors wanted to “make sure nothing more was going on”.
“They have let me know that I am in the clear and while I will always have UC [ulcerative colitis] it’s not turned into anything else,” she said.
The blogger admitted she found the process “scary” but now feels “really lucky and grateful”.
Hall said it was “a wake-up call” to prioritise her health and vowed to eat healthy and exercise.
