Hi,Sorry you are going thru all this awful stuff. Can you get a 2nd opinion? Seems to me that if we're chronically constipated then there's going to be some pain! See another doctor (specialist)!

I'm really sorry you are having such a difficult time.I'm a severe ibs sufferer to and you just want to see a Doctor who will understand your symptoms and what you are going through and of course to help you.Maybe it would be an idea to get a second opinion as Tiss said and what about your GP,have another talk to him/her also.Take care.

I also think that you should either get a second opinion or go see another doctor, probably a colorectal surgeon. You need to have all the tests done to determine the actual cause. Have you had any tests done?
