Lucky me. I've had health problems for years now. It started with diarreoh and anal fissures/piles. Then diagnosed with endometrois and its on the bowel and IBS , and fibromyalgia/M.E . I have for ages been saying my probs are my stomach. I had the fissure operated on in 1999 and haven't gone by myself without suppositories since. I then was referred to peeps who gave me laxatives and now....well eventually they say I have an anismus and I get botox injected in my spincture...then after a transit test...finally after 15 years they say its colonic inertia and to have subtotal colectomy.
I agreed because the pain...well...who needs this life. Then my gyneacologist said it could be endo related and he wouldnt have his bowel removed unless it was life or death.....so I am going back to ask more questions.
I hope that adhesions from teh endo havent caused the bowel to stick to otehr organs and when they try and take it out, everything else comes with it!! yikes!!
any ideas what to ask?
anyone had this done? or know why it happens?
I get terrible pains in my back behind the rib cage, is this something else?
also my stools (ahem) ...well they are never properly formed, even without laxatives it is sometimes undigested food, which doesn't tie in with slow transit ?
any help gratefully apprieciated.
