I just wanted to find out how others deal with the day to day management of bowel endo.
I have stage 4 endo which affects my sigmoid colon. I have had a sigmoidoscopy and biopsy done which confirm this (and thankfully rules out any other causes) and two laparoscopies one in 2014 and one in October this year. My bowel was not touched due to risk of complications and a possibilty of stoma (my choice).
I just want to know how others make it less life consuming. I get constipation pretty much all month so take movicol and lactulose on a regular basis and am pretty much always bloated with a lot of mucus on my stool. When on my period it is heavy with blood in my stool (this goes at the end of the period but the bowel never seems to settle). It makes me feel dreadfully self concious and down and depressed as it really takes over your life! Has anyone got any super tips or homeopathic suggestions for management?? Does anyone get these symptoms??
