A friend of mine was recently called for NHS bowel screening. Apparently some parts of the country are rolling it out for the 55-60 age group. When the Dr was in the middle of things, he asked her whether she had had a hysterectomy. She said not, and asked him why. He told her that she had a tight "bend" in her colon which they often see in women who have had a hysterectomy because the colon can rearrange itself a bit after surgery. I started to wonder about the reason why my ibs has got so much worse since my hysterectomy 5 years ago, and I have made a colon clinic appointment in two weeks to see whether I can find an answer to this. I am so sick of feeling terrible, and being given yet more laxatives and anti spasmodics by my GP who clearly thinks I'm bonkers. The results of a google search on this made a lot of sense to me - seems there are many people out there who say the same. Anyone else found similar problems??
