I finally had a gastro appointment at the hospital today, lost of questions around all my symptoms, and basically he said that some of the symptoms are definitely IBS (bloating, gas, full after eating etc), and that I am managing these well (doing everything they would have suggested including fodmap) but the pelvic and strong pain is more likely adhesions (identified last year during laparoscopy) and will just need to find the best medication to control the pain. He did agree to refer me for a flexible sigmoidoscopy just for peace of mind, but it's now just back to the dr to see what tablets to try next! I am pleased there wasn't anything worrying came out of the appointment, and pleased to be having the exam, but don't feel that happy as the pain has been worse lately and it worries me there doesn't seem much they can do. I also get pains in my shoulders, arms & hands and sometimes legs too, get really fatigued and groggy at times and can find it hard to concentrate, but he didn't really say anything about these symptoms - looking back I should have asked more specifically, but always seem to miss something at appointments! I don't know if these will be connected to the ibs/adhesion pains, or if this is something else. Also now have to figure out what to say at work, they are being supportive but need to sort out what can be done to help me be at work more because I've already had 20 sick days this year so have been referred to occupational health, I can do some home working days, but this isn't necessarily helpful as I can still feel bad on the other days - really muddled at the moment, not sure what to do now!
