Former EastEnders star Melissa Suffield shared an update after undergoing an ‘unremarkable endoscopy’ for her mystery illness and ‘drastic’ weight loss. 

The actress, known for her role as Lucy Beale in the BBC One soap, previously told how she has felt nauseous for three months, with doctor’s struggling to find the cause. 

Taking to her Instagram Stories, Melissa recently told her followers that she had been diagnosed with small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) – which is defined as the presence of excessive bacteria in the small intestine.

In her post, she wrote: ‘It’s highly likely that I have an issue with B12 absorption. Why? Unsure. But we know it’s highly likely, is the reason can come later / this needs to be addressed now. 

‘I’m really hopng it’s going to be the start of some genuine healing, and getting me back to where and WHO I ned to be.’

The star told how she is going to Cambridge next month for an appointment with a B2 specialist where she will be taught how to self-administer a B12 injection.

She added: ‘I want to stop spending all my spare time reading NICE guidelines and researching and reading papers and studies, and spend my time playing with my son and seeing my friends and family and eating nice meals and generaly just not constantly worrying. 

‘Don’t be surprised if you suddenly see me posting a load of ads lol, because this s**t is exepennnnnnsssssiiiveee.’

Melissa gave birth to son River in March 2020 and often documents his life on her blog ‘The Confident Mama.’

She focuses on spreading positivity, so it is no surprise that she is able to find the positives in this difficult situation.

‘But it’s all entirely worth it for moments like these,’ the post continued. ‘Time spent together, or seeing River’s face when we both appear as he wakes, and being able to simply sit and do nothing, with company. Tiny small joys that so many take for granted. We never do.’
