I am so miserable! I have been in pain for ever. No one took this serious until I startd bleeding from my rectum. Then of course they admitted me into the hospital, and i had a colonoscopy done followed by surgery, to remove a mass that was in my colon, that was bleeding; and thats all I know about that. The docors don't explain anything to me; I suppose they really don't know. I'm currently on many diffrents med's such as lotonex, bently, ranitidine,sucralfate,and prilosec. In a nut shell I feel like ######. I'm so desperate to feel better! I'm depressed, and so tired of feeling like ####. In fact come to think of it, I actaully had to ask my dr. if he would but me on something for IBS, and help me w/ the horrible symptoms. I don't know what to do next, what are my options? How do I approach my dr. about this, I think he has just given up on treatment or has just blown me off. I'm open to any suggestion please!!!!How could I forget to mention that shortly after the surgery, I had major hemmoroid problems, in fact it was so bad I had to go the E.R b/c it was so swollen and bleeding badly one had burst & the other they cut out! This has been no picnic for me. I live this horrible pain everyday, my stomach is so sensitive, I feel every little thing thats going on in there, and let me tell you it sucks big time. I'm not enjoying life at all.
