This is so aggravating.

Why they do it for diverticulitis and not for spasms?

Personally i would rather see if there were any other options before going down this route was that the only option given to you ? Is the no medications the docs could try first? Bev x

Surgery for diverticulitis is done because it is a disease. Spasms are not a disease nor is IBS. Have you tried consulting with one of the premier GI centers in the country? I'm not sure where you live but getting a 2nd opinion at the Cleveland Clinic or the Mayo in MN might be something to consider.

I'm from Canada.The price for resection is quite high in the USA.
 
I think it range between 25000-50000 or more.
 
MAN.Imagine if you get complications.

I agree with the others, having this kind of surgery is drastic and is normally done for people with severe disease or cancer and IBS is not either of those so I would doubt you could ever find a doctor that would do this type of surgery for no real reason. Spasms are something that could be controlled Im sure, you just need to find a good GI to chat to about this. Having an ileostomy is no walk in the park and if it was possible that I could have avoided this kind of surgery I sure would have.

If your spasms are as strong as mine are I can understand why you would be willing to endure surgery and the aftermath to get rid of them. My doctor prescribed Bentyl, which works most of the time. It at least calms the spasms down enough to be endured.
1999 Fibromyalgia and all the fun stuff that goes with it came to live with me.
