after 6.5 years of misdiagnosed pain, i seem to be cured.
the gynnos wouldnt see me anymore.the urologists give me muscle relaxers which made me put on weight and the digestive people said i had ibs.
i,d tried for a colonoscope several years ago which was abandoned as the sedative was useless and i was fighting them off because it was sheer torture.
so i was offered another but this time promised general anesthetic.
i had to wait 3 years on a waiting list.
i was very nervous when at last i got my appointment and was told i would be getting sedation but i would be asleep.
didnt believe them but yes i was put asleep and afterwards i was told they removed a very small polyp.
interestingly from the opposite side from my pain.
i am perfectly ok now.just waiting for results of biopsy.
when i think of all those years of my life doubled up in pain.
its not as though i have many years left to enjoy as i am 70.
i just thought i'd tell you ladies still in pain that there is light at the end of the tunnel and i think about the hopelessness some of you feel.
i especially feel for people in the states unable to afford health insurance and pray you can find a way forward.
