Help! 2 years ago my daughter was told she had severe ibs and she would just have to live with it. She is 23 now and last week she had such horrible stomach pain she went to the er and they gave her more pain meds and sent her home as usual, but the next day she was worse so she went back the the er and they admitted her, gave her another colonoscopy and found that her colon is dying! The docs are saying that if the colon cant heal itself (with proper diet) that the colon will have to be removed. This is a bunch of crap! For the last 8 or more years my daughter has had chronic diarrhea, stomach pain and hot flashes and every time she goes to the doc, they just give her pain killers and send her home. Over the last year or so she has become addicted to the pain meds because #1. they help her forget about
the pain and#2 they help constipate her. The docs have no explanation as to why her colon is dying, but say it has nothing to do with IBS. Any body out there have any ideas???
