Hi Nanc,
Welcome to Healing Well. I'm sorry you are having so many problems! It sounds like you're suffering with lots of issues. You're definitely in the right place. Many others here have suffered similarly.

I have some questions for you:
Have you seen a GI doctor?
Why is surgery ruled out?

Hope you feel better soon.
Denise

Hi nanc.
Sorry to hear that you are having so many problems. Is it possible for you to get a second opinion? Sometimes some doctors just don't understand what we are going through, and there are times when surgery is necessary; sounds like you are in that situation. I would strongly advise you to get another opinion as fast as you can. There's no need for you to suffer!

Good luck and keep us posted on your situation!

Hi nanc,
I second the second opinion idea. If someone isn't helping you, find someone else. I went through two GI docs before I found one who listened to me and was really helpful.
Good luck!
Denise
