My husband is 25 years old and has already had 1/4 of his bowel removed. He was diagnosted with Interupted Inferrior Vena Cava (The vein that takes blood from the lower half of the body, legs and abdomen back to the heart). He is CONSTATLY bloated, constipated, has bowel movements that are nothing but blood. He gets rancid stomach, were he burps what smells like rotten eggs, he vomits, and is in servere stomach pain. The Gasto Specialist we saw was more worried about looking like a moron than helping us out. No Dr will give him pain medication, and they all say what he has is to rare or he's to young. I have three reports from MRI, CT and Ultra Sound that says he has this. I'm tired of dealing with BS DR. and so is he. We currently have no Dr. So everytime something goes bad were just going to the hospital. Disability has turned us down four times, so now we have a laywer to help. Has anyone ever heard of this or know what to do? We are at our wits end. He's also Bipolor and has multiple personality disorder. We have NO income and are having alot of trouble dealing with this. We are afraid that the reason no DR will help is because there nothing they can do, and he's going to die. We have already surrendered to this fact but we would like to know how long or what could be done to make him confortable. We have a 7 year old and a 20 month old. We just want help. Anything is better than nothing. Thank you for takeing the time to read this.
