 I have been having severe upper abdominal pain/constipation/nausea and vomiting for about a year now..... I have had 2 EGDs, a colonoscopy, a sitzmaker study and a defacography and eventually decided to have my colon removed on March 4 2010. That solved the constipation part but I still am unable to eat food with out having severe pain, nausea, and vomiting. I have lost 30 pounds in 2 months and I am miserable all the time. The doctors don't know what is causing this horrible pain. I am at my wits end. Does anyone know of some one who could help me? I am in SC but I will travel anywhere for some relief. This is affecting my marriage, job, and overall wellbeing. Any help would be greatly aprpeciated! God bless you all!!!!

sorry to hear your in so much distress?
what was the actual reason for removing part of your colon?
You might contact the unc center for functional gi and motility disorders and see if they can recommend someone for you. Dr Whitehead there is a world expert on constipation also so you know.
also the IFFGD might be able to help you find someone in your area.
let us know
