Help- undiagnosed GI problem
katy41500 posted:
I am posting here because I don't know what to do. My husband has been having severe stomach troubles for the past 8 months. In December 2011, he had severe stomach pain (stabbing pain, on the left side under his rib). He went to the ER, and they said his white cells were elevated, so they removed his appendix. In January, the pain came back, coupled with severe diarrhea. The pain has been a constant in our lives, going away for a week or two, then returning, along with the diarrhea with blood, since January. To date, he has had 2 colonoscopies, an endoscopy, a capsule endoscopy, a HIDA scan, ultrasounds, CT scans, visits with three different GI doctors, and three hospital stays. Every doctor we see says that it is nothing- not Celiac, not Crohn's, not ulcerative colitis. My husband has lost 45 pounds, and our lives are ruled by this- he is miserable, and it is ruining any chance at a normal life. Any advice on where to turn would be appreciated- we are desperate! Thank you for reading this.
