. I have been having stomach issues for 5 years now since I had my gallbladder removed. Over the past few months what I believed to be IBS has got steadily worse, I am now struggling to control my bowels some days but other days I feel as though there is some sort of blockage there and I can't go at all? I am now in constant pain and have lost all appetite, constantly feeling sick and have lost a stone in weight.
The pain became so bad at the weekend my husband took me to A&E where Crohns or Ulcerative Colitis was discussed but I need a colonoscopy so they sent me home and will send me out an appointment for that within the next 12 weeks.
I am just so fed up feeling like this, I work full time and I am a mum to 2 small children and I could curl up in a ball every day, I eat because I know i have to not because I want to, I'm in so much pain afterwards my stomach constantly gurgles and I can't stop belching and have tight pains around my chest (I have already been diagnosed with a hiatus hernia but it is a lot worse and my medication doesn't seem to help anymore)
I was just hoping for some advice or help on the next steps, I'm so worried and have convinced myself there is something more sinister going on?
