I have alot of symptoms going on. Almost daily I have mild to severe abdominal pain,with swelling, anal bleeding from time to time, mild to severe leg cramps, night sweats, diarea, nausea & headaches. Some of the time the pain is in the right , some in the left and sometimes dead center. I have had 14 surgery's over the last 7 yrs. From loss of children to 3 reconstructions, 1/3 of my colon removed, gallbladder removed, appendix removed. I deal with pain almost daily. Some days are worse than others. I can't find much to eat without dealing with all of this later. I recently was hospitalized for 8 days. They said my colon was irritated and swollen ( I looked 7 months pregnant), my liver enzymes were elevated and I had and infection somewhere. They said I have Diverticulitus, Colonitus and IBS. I have also been told they are all in the worst stages. One doctor said I had alot of scar tissue and he thinks its contributing to my problems. They are wanting to do surgery to remove it. I have spoke with some people that think I have Crohnes Disease. I am very confused and dont know what to think or believe. All I know is i go almost everyday in pain. and I am very tired of it. PLEASE if anyone can help I would appreciate any advice.
