Hi, after six years of agony with a prolapsed bowel, frequency based constipation and "one at a time" taken to a whole new nightmare level, "stuck halfway" syndrome, and the ensuing exhaustion, pain, discomfort and self disgust, I am going to ask my Consultant to test my gall bladder, spleen, pancreas and liver for any problems which may relate to why I have such a radically abnormal troublesome bowel.
It didn't occur to me to go down this route until a friend mentioned that often other organs can be the root cause of the problem and I feel it is fair to say that nowadays Consultants DO NOT do the job they are paid to do and suggest things to the patient such as this, it is almost wholly down to the patient to do the donkey work, which I feel is grossly unfair as they are the professionals and the patient may have learning or mental issues, that make it difficult for them to recognise these factors, plus if they do have mental health issues, quite abusively in my opinion, their symptoms are often put down as "behavioral". Now I KNOW this to be true from six years of ghastly experience of the NHS system, and I am niether lying or exaggerating, I speak honestly from experience.
Anyway I have a proctogram on the 29th Feb, and no doubt it will be a month or even two month wait before I can subsequently get to see the Consultant but I will keep you posted, and I going to be quite firm about wanting extra tests as as well as my friend pointing this out I have read in a medical journal that other organs can be the root cause of bowel problems, and I've had six years of being palmed off and I've had enough!
