I had my ovaries removed in Jan this year. 2 weeks after operation I had stomach problems. I was diagnosed with extreme IBS. How can this be possible. I have pain every day of my life and have been in hospital about 8 times already. My stomach swells a lot.....my blood pressure goes up......the pain is extreme. I frequently get pain injections and my GP in between. I am desperate for help. I take medication to keep my stomach going every day...and still the pain does not go away.
How do I cope?????
Welcome to ehealthforum.
The IBS should be treated aggressively to stop the painful symptoms. Consult with a Gastroenterologist for the IBS. Go ahead with colonoscopy to get direct visualization of the IBS lesions inside and your treating Gastroenterologist will know how bad the lesions are, and if they need to be surgically removed if the medical management is failing to give you relief.
