I am suffering terribly and have done for years with constipation, diarreah, cramps, fissures, hemearoids the lot. I am at my wits end.
I have celiac disease (10 years) I am dairy intolerant and allergic to sweeteners. I have also had a thyroid goiter, and another growing on my remaining lobe!
I have had no end of luck getting any treatment or recognition for my symptoms. Twice had surgery for fissures which haven't worked, because I think, the underlying issue has not been investigated.
I finally get a colonoscopy last month which showed indeterminate colitis in cecum and rectum with chronic fissures and tracking through my rectum. My histology has come back normal and so my gastro has suggested that it could be crohns related isolated to cecum but doesn't know for certain. The appointment was scheduled for April to discuss results but I rang them and the consultant got in touch. However, with nothing more to say about the findings other than they are normal. Can ulcerations be normal? Chronic fissures etc? Constant bleeding? I don't get it? I did challenge this and he has arranged for a scan on my small intestines.
And as for my rectal area, it is not his area and need to go back to the colorectal surgeon. Why would he not refer me to that department in the same hospital i had my colonoscopy. I am so fed up of all this and no one wants to help me or knows how to. I have resulted to the fact I've just got to live like this...somehow.
I've quit my job because I can't function anymore. The fatigue is crippling. The pain is exhausting. Is this how it is now?
