Hi Jamie lee,

So sorry to hear you are in so much pain.  Have your drs ever mentioned colonic inertia? you might want to go to the ostomies thread and read some of the posts under total colectomy part 21 and back to get some info on it.

I was diagnosed with severe IBS with constipation for a few years until my GI dr looked into it further as things continued to get worse each year.

I wish you the best.

There's always hope and things will get better :)
