I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease back on July 14th of 2008. The time of diagnosis I was 230 lbs @ 6ft2 and today January 12th, 2011 I weigh 164 lbs.
I recently had a second colonoscopy and endoscopy and they told me that there was no inflammation, signs of Chrons or Colitis the on thing they found was that I had pockets in the large bowel (diverticulosis) and they removed two polyps that tested precancerous.
I feel sicker than ever. There is so much distress when I eat that I don't even want to eat anymore. Instant, extreme painful belching, food feels like its not even digesting, stools are thin and foul smelling, stool consistancy is that of a wet clay ( sorry for being graphic ). I know there is something going on but the doctors just keep telling me I know I'm not.
It's not normal to lost 65-70 lbs in two years. I had a test for h pylori by biopsy so i'm wondering if maybe I have that and they just took it from a spot that wasn't infected because I feel so weak and fatigued everyday like my body is fighting of something and the majority of my problems seem to revolve around the gastro-intestinal issue.
I just wish they would figure out what is going on. I have lost two years of my life to this. Basically bed ridden for the last year its been so bad. The doctors just say, "well why aren't you working?" I'd like to see anyone work while they feel like this. If I do even the simplest task I feel like im going to collapse.

I was diagnosed with diverticulitis, and I do know what you mean the pain is unpleasant. I think you should go see another DR. I am feeling better, but not 100 %. Have you tried taking a fiber supplement? and are you well hydrated? I say stay strong, and pray that it all goes away. Get a better dr. you deserve it.
