If you live in the UK and have inflammatory bowel disease charity Bowel & Cancer Research (B&CR) wants to hear about how much time the last examination you had took up....
Lesley Booth from B&CR said: "We know that hours are lost to any chronic condition – travelling and attending appointments, missing social and family events, work, study and hobbies can all be affected.
"So, following a patient led focus group we have been busy designing a survey to try and find out from those of you who have Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis what time you believe you have lost and we want your help to calculate how these hours add up. If you have inflammatory bowel disease then we would would value your feedback.
"The link to the survey is below. It shouldn't take you longer than 5 minutes to do it."
