Hi i have just been diagnosed with DD via a colonoscopy which comes as a surprise when your only 36. For the 3 months prior to this i had a stuck kidney stone in my ureter, this was eventually treated and fixed with lithotripsy, however for the 3 months i was waiting i was given Tramadol and diclofenac to dull the pain. I am a firm believer that it was the drugs that has caused the DD as i had no issues at all before this. I know it could have been there before and i didn't notice it but it all seems to be too much of a coincidence.
I have also seen on here that Tramadol is given to help people with DD pains, which i find strange as Tramadol doesn't exactly help your stools flow easily.
I am feeling a little bit lost since finding out about the DD (2 days ago) its something i feel that is a lot bigger than i can take in right now. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
I have had no advice on diet so I've started by ordering some fiber supplements.
All i know is i have to back to consultant in 3-4 weeks and see if my pain has gone.
