Hello, hope you are all having a pain free day, I'm new to this network but thought I would try to seek some advice.
I have suffered with pain in my upper abdomen for a long while that would ease off within a day or two. Last year it became so bad, I had to be taken into hospital for further investigation as to what was causing this horrendous pain. I had emergency surgery and I was informed after the surgery that they had found a large mass on my bowel that they had to remove along with a quarter of my bowel. The mass was sent off for tests and when I went for my follow up appointment I was told that it was crohn's disease and diverticulitis. The confusing part is they said that they has removed the crohn's and diverticulitis?
A year on and I am still getting the pains in upper abdomen and the urgency to open my bowels which are very very loose. This is affecting my life as when I need to go to the toilet, I need to go! I can't go anywhere due to the urgency.
Any advice would be very much appreciated. The hospital discharged me after my results so I don't know where to turn and don't know much about both of the conditions so any help is very welcome xx
