Ok here we go...
This is actually my mother's problem but she is at her wits end trying to find out what is going on.
For the past several years she has been having colon problems (her mother did have colon cancer). They have gotten progressively worse as the years have gone along. She has had several colonoscopies and a few barium enemas. For years they have been saying she had diverticulitis BUT all the test have yielded NOTHING at all is wrong. :eek: No polyps, no tears, no nothing. It is all smooth, clean, and fine.
So now what :confused: She is still in intermittent acute pain, times when she can't leave the house cause of the bathroom trips, bleeding from her anus while she sleeps and the list goes on.
Does anyone have any ideas on what this is? I think this might be caused by something other than her colon. I think her colon problems are more the symptoms of some other organ this is sick. I have heard of gallbladder problems causing issues with the intestines but I can't seem to find anything on the internet to suggest that anything could cause these symptoms other than the colon itself.
Not to mention in the back of my head I have to worry, "will this happen to me too". The track record in my family isn't looking too good.
