    Hi

    I have the same problem. The pain in lower stomach keeps

    sending me to hospital.

    The only thing that I can suggest is to go on a liquid diet only for a few days to give your bowel a rest , then gradually start having small portions of low residue foods. Google it.

    If it keeps on see your doctor.

    Good luck, let us know how you get on.

    I agree I have permanent pain in my lower left side but when it gets worse I stick to liquids and phone my DR if the pain changes. Hope you feel better soon x

    Go on a liquid diet and don't eat anything. Judy lots of liquids even clear broth. If the diarrhea doesn't stop by tomorrow go to doctor or emergency room. Take care.

    I have been in your place for the last year.  1 hospital stay and several trips to the emergency room for pain killers and anti-boitics. I live in the US and most people on this site are from the UK.  UK and US doctors treat it differently.  After a number of very painful flare ups it has been very difficult.  The only relief I have found is to drink all liquids. When the pain goes away I try and start fiber including fiber drinks and supplements. I also, try and eat very small, very small, portions. There is much good advice in this blog but, I can't not live my life with eating puree foods everyday.  The US doctors are saying that I have been living with an intestinal infection for over 1 year and that it should be cut out or live the rest of your life in pain and, possible death from internal infections.  It is effecting my life, relationship with children, being in constant pain. I will be undergoing surgrey at the end of August.  If anyone else has gone thru this please let me know your results. Thank you and God Bless

      So sorry you are suffering it's awful when you don't know what to do In the UK the DRs treatment is antibiotics and soft diet until the infection as gone I was really ill at Christmas but didn't go to hospital the DR treated me at home I saw my gastroenterologist a few weeks ago and I am going for a sygmoyedoscopy just to look at the left side were I get all my pain. He told me they don't operate unless there is no other choice. If you look on this forum you will see posts of people in the US who have had surgery. Good look do let us know how you get on

      I believe you are making the right decision. Suffering as you are is not good. My doctor said basically the same thing. When it has changed the quality of your life you must take the steps to improve your life.

      It's a difficult disease to deal with and I have been dealing with it for over 15 years.

      Prayers for a successful surgery and health in the future.
