Hi all,

I'll make my story short, I am going to see my doc today and try to challange him while begging to try to understand my situation for the numerous time that I had approached him about my stmptoms without any findings..... does this sound familiar ???

Well I had an injury at work about 9 years ago , since then I have been having problems with my stomache and bowel movements and lots of pain..., after tons of scans and examinations I was told I had IBS due to stress which was non existent in my life .....,
I had done test after test barrium scan, ct scan, mri , ednoscopy ets... no findings... my problems are trapped stool in my intestines can not pass bowel sometimes up to 4 -5 days...., taking all kinds of stuff from metamucil to Wholy tea etc... seems to help at times but the problem still remains....
I am having lots of pain below my belly button and around my penis radiating down to my testicles and around my thighs, I am havinf burning sensation and it seems every time I eat the food travels well through my intestines till it reaches the bottom under my belly button and then gets stuck, I have to lay down with my legs and hips elevated and press on my belly righ below my belly button and then eventually I can go and pass stool, I am also very gassy, passing gas from 20 to 50 times a day...,
I hurt when I run , when I sneeze feels like something is ripping down around my crouch area.....
I just need help , I have been living like this for the past 9 years , today Isaid enough is enough and gonna make my doc listen and send me to a hernia specialist.....,
I mean what else could that be.....

anyone ???,
