stitcher45 please dont worry about the length of your post and certainly dont appologize for it , i am feeling honored that more people are sharing their personal experiences with me and that they understand what i go through in daily life

As far back as i can remember i have always had bowel problems but it was just a 'nervous stomach' or so the doctors kept telling my mom and me. I only wish i had seen the great doctor that i found first. I went to one doctor and he told me my ( at the time) 75lb weight loss was all in my head and thet he could reccommend a great psychiatrist to me ..... some doctors really do push my buttons *Grrr*

I am going to see my doctor next wednesday at 11:20am so i will ask her then if what i have is not actually IBS but Crones ...she is a great doctor and knows that if i am asking /or complaining of pain it is real and not fake .....not to mention she loves the cookies i make for her

Well, i am off to put yet another load of laundry in from our camping weekend then i will check back in after i have done all that

Have a great evening and thank you everyone for sharing your experiences....it means a lot to me

Sue

(((((SUE)))))

How are you?!?! Sorry I haven't been around lately, my puppy got really sick and needed to have emergency surgery The good news is that he is doing MUCH better now!

How did your appt go? What did the Dr say about the possibility of Crohns?

(((((sugarspicenpuppytails))))) (((((stitcher45))))) I'm sorry you are dealing with this also. It sure does help being able to talk with others that are dealing with the same things!

Wishing you all health and happiness! So glad to be back here amongst friends

Love & Hugs

hey Tina

HI there Tina,

I was wondering where you were. I am glad to hear you are well and everything is alright.

I am so sorry to hear that your puppy was sick but i am happy to hear he is getting better now

I am sorry i forgot to post an update on this * slaps hand* lol i went to the doctor last wednesday and she is now testing me for celiac disease and is just waiting on the blood work i just had done and then is shipping me off to a specialist. I dont think i have ever heard another doctor swear infront of a patient before but she was looking at my files which were transfered from my old doctor and she couldnt believe that i had been through so much and that no help was given to me...that is when she said that this is BS ( she said the full word though lol) and that noone should have to live with the pain i suffer and thats when she told me she was shipping me off to the specialist. She should get the test results back on Wednesday so i will let you know as soon as she calls me ( which she always does).

Thank you for asking how it went as i would have totally forgotten to post an update lol i thought i had posted one but as i look at it now i remember posting on another forum about a gyno visit * must have had mommie brain*.

SO how is everyone else doing?? it has been pretty quiet on this board and was getting worried about everyone.

I hope everyone is alright and that you are having a great weekend

Sue

Hi Sue!

I'm so glad you found a doctor who finds your situation as awful as I do. I know there are lots of terrible diseases out there where people suffer but I've never heard of such a severe case of IBS. I truly hope they can find the cause since that's the key to getting you better. You are so upbeat, it's amazing. Please keep us posted.

Thank you for your kind words I am just waiting now for my doctor to call me with the test results...she had my file with the results in it yesterday when i called to check so i am not sure if that is a good thing or not lol
As for me being upbeat ...i have to be otherwise i would be so down in the dumps with all this going on plus some other 'female' health problems i am dealing with ...a doctor once said to me that when i lose my sense of humor he will know i have given up..i dont give up on anything .. i am stubborn like that LOL
Plus you have to laugh at life cuz if you dont you would be crying all the time and that isnt good !

Thank you again and as soon as i know the test results i will let you all know

Sue

stitcher45, i am so sorry that you arent feeling too good right now. When i have an attack i usually just put things on hold for a few hours, days or whatever.
I have heard that you can take immodium <sp> but i cant take that so i really dont know if it works or not
I am sorry i cant be of more help right now but just wanted to let you know that i am thinking about you and wish you a very speedy recovery from this 'attack'.

Sue

I wish it was just an attack that would mean that it would end. It seems like mine is a day in day out thing. If I'm not have the runs than it am having trouble with constant messy pants because everytime I move I have some BM come out. I can't seem to push it out so there is nothing there to pass but I can't. I'll think I am ok and the next thing yopu know I have had it happen again. I have started wearing a pad in my pants but I still have such a soar raw bottom. There is no pain or dicomfort with this and imay last for several days then go back to the runs. My doctor says just take the Immodum and I do. I go through a box every couple days. Like I said I am very tired of this.

Sorry that I seem to always be dumping on all of you. I just feel that you will understand where others don't. I'm so glad you are here. Thanks for listening

You are not 'dumping' on anyone ...we are here as we have all been in similar situations and understand each other !!

When i read what you wrote in your last post i couldnt believe someone else was also going through what i go though. I dont take immodium though.

I wish i could make it all go away for you or tell you some magical thing to take to make you feel better but i just dont know of anything Please know that i (we) are here for you whenever you need a shoulder to lean on

Get better soon....
