Hey guys I'm an 18 yr old man who has had bowel problems since I was born now recently I have been having a really bad back just back ache, and in a morning its worse and I am always full of wind, I have had ibs all my life and I always dread going to the toilet most of the time, I bleed its mostly dry blood but I have noticed recently peanuts make me bleed seriously bad and it makes me very sore so no more peanuts for me its always the things you love that cause the most problems, and if I'm having a bad time such as loose stools/diarrhoea then it makes it worse, I have had a serious change in bowel habit for quite some time now always starts ok then loosens off I have to leave it a couple of days for it to be ok and that causes problems I have a sore stomach and when I sit down for too long I get what's called saddle seat I think that's what its called and my testicle's start to go numb. I have been to the doctors about the back ache because its getting me down and its got to the point where iv'e had enough and I have a family history of bowel cancer my granddad died from it because he was persistent he didn't want to get it sorted and his bowels exploded on him and sadly he passed away. So the doctor sent me for an mri scan now waiting for the results but since I have had the scan I have been really bad stomach pains, trapped wind, going dizzy, serious tiredness and it feels as if my eyes have sunk into my head so i am a bit worried for the out come i hope it is ok Lewis_29:confused:

Bowels are complicated, ive had 11 surgeries and ive had every test going. You are bound to think the worst, its the fear of the unknown. See if any of my symptoms are same as yours
