Following on from posting yesterday to sort of introduce myself a bit....I'm now hoping to make contact with anyone managing SBO.
This is because I'm being investigated by a bevy of clinics due to 4+ months during which my complex persistent chronic peritoneum/abdo/pelvic/spine conditions have been flaring (these conditions involve a typically complex immune dysfunction set of specialties...over the past 30+ years, i've lifestyle managed agogo & been thoroughly investigate by neurology + gastroenterology + urology + gyn + immunology + rheumatology and given reasonable diagnoses + various successful procedures & ops + rehab regimes inc core stability/pelvic floor + pharmaceutical treatments, all of which have combined to help me spend the past 2 years in the least abdo/pelvic discomfort & pain i've had since my 20s)
now I just hope to find out whether anyone here is like me in having been living with/managing a rather more complicated version of spina bifida occulta. this link goes some way towards explaining the various degrees of severity of SBO:
my version of SBO was diagnosed via imaging tests many years ago. My consultants found my lower back was affected structurally & neurologically. This week, i'm intending to mention my SBO to the gyn/urology physio my consultants have referred me to...and am just wondering if the effects of all this may be something that gradually reshape to hit us in new ways with age: i'm now 62 and discovering the joys (not!) that age can bring to what had been effectively managed, relatively stable chronic conditions 😉
