Go-Go, I can ditto almost everything you shared. I am sitting on commode with my IPad now! So much I can share with you, I could write a book. I was born with FAP, inherited colon cancer. Surgeries started at 12 yrs. old. Have had 8 abdominal colon surgeries, not counting rectal ones. I had my J-Pouch in 2000, 12 yrs. ago. It was pure hell. I have taken every kind of medicine there is. Dumping syndrome will not let me go anywhere after I eat. Out to eat with friends/ family, no way. I only eat 1 meal a day & very little. No life, not much fun. I am single, live alone & I have 2 grown married children, 6 grandchildren & 3 great grandsons. I love them dearly. But in pain all the time. Back, arthritis, osteo arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, all the (authritis) haha. Diabetic, neuropathy. Sorry,I can go on. I want a better life , I have a lot to live for & I want to. My last resort is an ilieoscopy. I am seriously considering it. Drs. Not sure yet. I hate the thoughts of another major surgery. Sorry so long, I have not posted on here for a long time. But my heart goes out to you. I can't say I know what you have been through, BUT, I know what I am going through. Time to get off the pot!!! Lol you are not alone, a lot of people have helped me, & are there for you too. Love to you, PFKSJ.
