I need help

I need help!! I have been trying to figure out what is wrong with me since I was 22. I have chronic pain in my stomach. The lower right side and on the left side about even with my belly button. I've had my gall bladder removed a hysterectomy and countless other 'tests'. Still my pain persists and my bms are never regular. I go from not going at all to extremely loose stools...completely water. I've never had a colonoscopy, it's never been suggested. I've had countless ct scans. Basically I've been dealing with the same issues for 10+ years. With no relief and no answers. After reading up on the internet I believe I have some sort of ibd. I don't know how to get my drs to help me!! Thanks for any advice y'all can give me!

Oh dear it does sound like you have had it rough. I don't understand why your doctors don't refer you to a specialist. That's what happened to me...took them a few years tho. It does sound like Crohn's. You really need it sorted tho. I would just keep goin...have you asked to be referred to a specialist?? I hope it gets sorted soon x

I keep getting sent to all of these different specialists. First they removed my gall bladder and that helped some with the nausea but not at all with the pain. So 3 more years of back and forth to the dr and being referred to a urologist bc of blood in my urine (turned out nothing wrong there) finally ended up at my obgyn and she suggested that my symptoms stem from my uterus and how it was laying on my intestines (had adenomyosis). I told her specifically about the lower right pain so she removed my ovary on that side as well. Fast forward 5 months and I am miserable once again! I went back to the dr yesterday and she said it may be appendicitis bc of where I'm hurting so a whole new set of tests showed its not my appendix. I'm so frustrated!!!!

It sounds like you need to be seen by a gastroenterologist who will likely perform a colonoscopy.
