This is my first time writing in any forum so please be patient. I had a colectomy & anastomosis back in 2006 for severe colonic inertia. Felt better for about 3 to 4 months and I have been sick ever since. I still deal with the colonic inertia even though they removed 7 feet of my bowel. Three of my large colon and 4 of my small. I asked the surgeon why so much and he told me that is what looked the best. Ridiculous!! Maybe I am the one wrong here. I am lost and scared. I was seeing a doctor at Johns Hopkins they have a motility department but very few people seem to know what they are doing. Hopkins seems to be the experts at Crohn's so they say, that may be debatible. I have been researching the cleveland clinic. I would really appreciate to hear from anyone who has gone to the clinic for colonic inertia. I also have garaperisis, and a collapsed duodedum bulb. Help does anyone know a good doctor at cleveland we will be traveling from PA.
