Hi...new here, and going out of my mind! Have had diarreah for 13 months. In the first 6 months, attributed it to methadone withdrawal. Was on med for 15 years for scar tissue pain and severe nerve damage. I also have lupus.
In May, 2016, the diarreah became watery diarreah and had the constant urge to have BM. After 3 weeks of daily watery diarrhea, and not getting a warning before it just runs out, I called Primary doc. Did a CBC and blood work was normal, other than expexted potassium loss. No cramping or stomach pain with diarreah. Was referred to Gastro. Immediately did colonoscopy and endoscopy. Had 4 polyps. 1 cancerous and 3 precancerous. Said he did not see anything else other than a kinked bowel, caused by adhesions.
Diarrhea still ongoing. Can happen anytime, anywhere, even during the night. Can't make it 15 ft to bathroom! Then in Dec 2016, I started having upper abdominal pain and in my back. Nauseated daily and especially after eating. Diarreah happening within 30 minutes of eating and still sometimes whether I eat or not. Pain would come and go and then decided to stay. Had CT scan and showed gallstones. Feb 16th, gallbladder out.
Still having major diarreah. Now I have really bad pain on right side, like between ribs and kidney area. Feels like something inside being pulled apart. Pain will also be in lower rh side, which has been there for years due to 5 hernia repairs and a bowel obstruction due to adhesions. Have had 2 adhesion removal surgeries.
At my wits end. Can't leave my house unless I take Lomotil. Have kept food diary and nothing stands out. My gastro has me on Cholestimine now, and it's not helping. Any ideas????? Please!!
