I am desperatly seaching for other people who may have the same problem. I am writing for a dear friend. the story is long but I'll keep it breif. The pain started after his return home from Viet Nam in 1969. That is how long he has been suffering. I'll list the tests that have been done; exploritory surgery, apendix removed, countless blood tests, MRI, CAT, scopes, mental health counciling (on-going), the list of medication are long, anti spasmotics, antidepressents, codiene (still), metamusal (really bad idea). He has been to cleveland Case Western, and is now trying the Veterans Administration. so with all this said, here are his symptoms,
Extreme abdominal apin, left side under the lower ribs, problem deficating, after a b.m. he is in extreme pain that can last any where from 1 hour to serveal days. He knows the codiene compounds the problem (b.m.) but the pain is so intense he cannot go without it. The pain comes on quickly and has disrupted his life. Not one doctor out there so far has been able to help him, they have said it was IBS caused by stress. Any ideas anyone. I love this man and I have been trying to help for the last 2 years! :confused:
