hi, i hav been diagnosed with a slow transit colon
I am 28 years olds, and have suffered constipation, and severe stomach pain for the last three years, I have had two colonoscopys in two years, just met a great gi doctor, who said i have a slow transit colon, he did my last colonoscopy and said my colon is twisted, and he has referred me to a colon surgeon, i am having the transit colon test with the markers, actually started that today, and my next week is another test is defacograthy, and then i meet with the surgeon on the 12th, I have tried so much stuff, it takes me between 3 weeks to 4 weeks to have a bowel movement i am miserable and i want my life back, has anyone had anything similar to this, or can give me any advice, bc i am very nervous.
I have tried several laxatives, miralax, and lacy lea beau tea , nothing worked , I am not eating cheese or peanut butter , not sure about the twisted pArt I think it's more the slow transit that's causing the problems
