I have had gastro problems for over 2 years now. I have severe pain constantly. I have been on many different medications for the pain but nothing works. I am either constipated or have diarrhea. I have cut out wheat and dairy products to see if that has helped. I was in the hospital for 8 months last year in order to figure out what was wrong and none of the doctors could help. On top of it I have sidus inversus, extra spleen (7 to be exact), a very large liver and two working pancri. A year and a half ago I had surgery to fix a kink in my intestine and six months ago I had surgery to remove adhesions that were wrapped around my duodenum and colon. The doctors didn’t want to take any of these extra parts out in fear it would only make things worse. I can’t sleep because the pain is so bad. I feel like I have tried everything. I have tried acupuncture, natural herbs, changed my eating habits… I don’t know what to do. I can’t live like this any more.
