I guess you have Irritable Bowel Syndrome, right? You usually don't need to have your colon removed for that, as far as I know. I don't think a surgeon would remove a colon, unless it was diseased, or not functioning at all. I know a couple folks with fibro, and they don't have trouble eating. I know some folks with Irritatable Bowel, and they are functioning some of the time, and meds seem to help some. Also they are eating ok too. I am sure hoping someone will come on here with better advice than me. I just wonder about you seeing someone at a teaching hospital for another look at you. Those docs love the unusual cases.
