I have had this severe stabbing pain in my lower left side of my back for over a year. It isn't always constant. I had to have my emerg gall bladder removal a year ago. My GI stated at that point i had refered pain from my gallbladder. Well the pain hasn't subsided yet. I have battled with constipation for atleast the past 15 years i know of. Sometimes going 1-2 weeks with no BM. I have tried changing my diet. My GI stated IBS. Yeah the meds she gave me helped but even then i was still only going 2-3 a week. I can tell when i haven't been in a while my stomach area hurts so bad and i get so nausous. I had a colonsposy almost 8 yrs ago due to retcal bleeding , they only found a hemroid then. I had an endoscopy a year ago said i had some reflux and a hital hernia and the GI swore then my pain in my left side is only refered pain. I have so much pressure so i finally have to resort to use something for some releif. I can't go to the bathroom now without an enama or laxative and even then i have so much pain during the process. Im scared they are missing something really badly. I keep a constant headache and i haven't slept a full night in i can't tell you when. i've already had to have a hysterectomy due to enodmetriois that my OB/GYN gave as my last resort. My grandmother on my dad's side died with colon cancer in 1976. My grandmother and aunt on my moms side both have battled breast cancer. What do i have to do to get a dr to take me seriously? I'm 27 and i feel like they don't think this is a problem for me.
