I am 56 years old and have been diagnosed with IC, IBS with steatorrhea, severe osteoporosis, have had L4 laminectomy, L4,L5, S1 discectomies, I now have Spinal Stenosis and live in constant pain. I have had Hep C, type1 for over 30 years. I've had a total hysterectomy which was botched and they had to remove a portion of my colon that they had stapled through. I have had multiple traumatic surgeries. I take HM Contin 12 mg, twice a day, which is probably one of the reasons why I have no appetite, but I just feel nausea everytime I think about eating. I have been living on "Boost". When I have an IC flare it seems to trigger my "spastic colon" and after years of using Belladonna alkaloids I now balance control of my bowels using Dilaudid 2mg. I know this isn't the best answer, but I've had too many bad results with Lomotil, Buscopan, etc.I'm not sure what to eat any more, if I follow my IC diet, it sets off my IBS and if I follow the IBS diet it seems to set of another IC flare. I take Probiotics, Fosomax, Multi-vitamins/minerals/Calcium supplements. I have hydrodistensions of the bladder done every 6 months for IC.
