Guess what everyone!

I went to the best gastric doc here today.  My CT scan showed no signs of DD, he says sounds more like a spastic colon.  He punched around and I have had this right flank ‘ache’ off and on ...more on than off since February.   He doesn’t see any abnormalities of the colon or scan of other organs so he put me on Dicyclomine 10 mg the least dose because I am so sensitive to meds.    He also told me absolutely no fiber. 

I ate chicken soup, crackers, water tonight w my pill. No aching.   He did schedule scopes for both ends in July.    If he were concern about anything serious would he have scheduled so far away?   

That’s my anxiety kicking in!    Do any of you have a lot of stress/anxiety that have tummy issues?

    Smart doctor. Use the dicylomine as needed. I take 20 mg but have taken 10 mg.  I also have IBS  and DD ANF spastic Colon so it’s a losing battle so just be patient and keep a log on what bothers you.  I must stay away from too much fiber.  It hurts me more than helps.  I use Miralax for constipation.  It really helps and keep using it when needed.  Straining causes irritation in those pockets. Good luck!

    I have definitely felt that stress has impacted on my health.  Whenever I get stressed I get the knots in my stomach.  Recently a doctor prescribed me buscopan.  

    I've been on omeprazole for years as I was previously diagnosed with IBS and on my health records it's also been noted gastritis (which I didn't know of) and now in a quandry as to whether I take omeprazole or buscopan!

    • Posted know when all this stuff came out that you had to consume so much fiber a day, I thought ok.....I’ll try it....maybe it will help me not have any more issues with DD!  Wrong!  Why don’t they say ‘Fiber Is Not For Everyone’???   I can remember way back 20 years that I had issues and not one doctor said lower or don’t each fiber. Your system can’t toketate it. Even my surgeon who did my resection never told me.  

      This group has helped me more than you know....or you probably DO know as we all seem to be able to figure this out a little at a time. 

      I’m ssoo thankful I found all of you!

    If you don't have DD why no fiber. Isn't that supposed to help keep the DD away? And if your fine why the Dicylocomine? Is that an antibiotic?
