hello, I have been suffering with all sorts of bowel problems and got the all clear after they had a look with the camera in my stomach and in my bowel. they did find eight benign sessile polyps which they took a sample and it came back normal. my bowel sample also came back normal also which I was very pleased about as I am an anxious person. are these benign polyps anything to worry about? I asked why they didn't remove them all and they said they on remove them if there are lots and they are causing trouble, well I always have stomach trouble and have done for years so think they should have just removed them. they told me I just have ibs, I like the way they say just like its no big deal. I have had some indescribable stomach cramps with diarrhoea and constipation but mainly with the diarrhoea and it has left me very anxious which of course just makes it worse. I cant go anywhere alone and I cant go far from a toilet. I have read that amitriptyline is used for ibs? is it any good? im scared of trying new drugs as I have such a sensitive stomach that every thing kicks off a flair up and just makes me feel worse. at the moment when I m real bad I take paracetomal and codeine tablets from boots chemist but I have to be careful as the codeine can make you constipated. I just cant win............any advise would be gratefully received. thanks for listening.x
