I've had constipation and severe pain in lower right side for a LONG time. I have visited two gastro docs regarding this problem. Both just sent me on the usual colonoscopy conveyor belt and didn't bother to even listen to my other complaints. They just said everything was fine and dumped me back on my OB/GYN. I continued to have problems and kept seeing my OB/GYN regarding these problems (she's the only one who has seriously listened to my symptoms). My OB/GYN at least told me about taking MIRALAX and glycerin suppositories to help with constipation. It helps a little but doesn't fix the problem. About three months ago, I began to have extreme bloating which starts in the upper abdominal area into my back and travels down into hip and into thighs. After eating I have trouble breathing because of the painful swelling. My OB/GYN called one of the gastro docs and insisted he see me again. He just decided my "parts" had dropped and that was making my colon collapse and that was causing the reason I had constipation and he didn't know why I was swelling?????? In the past month, I now have a small pocket protruding out in my bladder area which I thought maybe a hernia and extreme pressure on bladder which creates feeling that I need to urinate even when I don't. My OB/GYN sent me for a CT scan to check all and it came back ok. I don't know what direction to go. I'm still so swollen I have trouble breathing and I need suppositories for constipation and on and on. I also have episodes when I feel like I have a fever but I don't. I'm not sure what direction to proceed? Could it be bladder related, allergy related, blockage somewhere?? Anyone out there have the same problems that could help me?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
