      Hi Susan, thanks for your reply. It's just the same with me, moving about seems to make it worse. I thought it was going last week but it came back on Sunday it feels as  though I have a wound. How long have had it. Anybody else got any ideas.

      Hi Thomas,

      Mine seems to be hanging on, it did ease but has flared right back up. I've just had some blood test to see if I have an infection or inflammation. Just hope they show something👍

      I never seam to be free of pain it's in the bottom of my left side I haven't been to hospital did I want to bother them I honestly don't know if the pain ever goes I hope so. I have heard of a operation you can have but I don't think the UK like to do That's the impression I got from the consultant I saw in February x

      Hi Susan,

      I've read the operation is a last resort.  Have you tried asking for pain relief from your GP to help you ?

      Start a daily probiotic (1 pill) of 1-2 billion live cultures, it puts good bacteria back into your system and helps a great deal with the diarrhea. I take Acidophilus, my doctor recommended it to get me back on track.
