I am posting this thread to share my story with hopes of finding answers or at least with hopes to help someone else experiencing the same sort of issues. Basically I was diagnosed with intestinal malrotation about 1 year ago, before that I had lived with several "stomach issues" my entire life and never really knew what was wrong. I ended being hospitalized for a small bowel obstruction which eventually led to my diagnosis. I felt like finally I had some answers to all of my symptoms (diarrhea, constipation, nausea, vomiting, intermittent abdominal pain). However it's been the complete opposite, every single doctor I have spoke to has either never seen this condition in adults or doesn't feel it's the actual problem and relates my symptoms to irritable bowel syndrome. I have spent countless hours in the emergency room which has led to over 5 hospitalizations for small bowel obstructions. This is like playing with fire, each one seems to get worse and there still is no doctor that is willing to take on my case. Does anyone have a similar experience? Does anyone know of a physician who can help, I am at wits end? Please help!Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
