I am very frustrated! I have been to 2 gastrointestinal specialists and they think my problems are not colon related.
I have suffered from constipation for more than 10 years which resulted in me having severe back pain; where I could
not walk. The CT Scan revealed an impacted colon and they made me flush my colon but failed to have another
CT done to see if the stuff is all out. I still have pains in my lower right (across from my navel). I did test with my gynecologist and everything seemed normal.(no fibroids).. I am suffering, I do not know what to do, I need HELP..please
If indeed your problem is an inactive colon, my recommendation is to try a very high fibre diet (lots of pulverised fresh fruit and pulverised fresh vegetables to which some organic bran has been added, wholemeal bread, home made muesli - i.e. organic oats + bran soaked in milk to which grated fruit and nuts has been added). No processed foods, colas, junk food etc etc. Drink ~ 2 litres of water per day.
If that does not work then there are reports on Medhelp of patients who have been advised to have a total colectomy as a treatment of absolute last resort.
If this may be a solution for you, I underwent a total colectomy - but for torrential diverticular bleeding. I recorded my experience in response to another Medhelp patient on:-
