Good evening to all,
I have a question about further investigation of my Jpouch issues.
I have gotten a pouch scope done in August, an upper endoscopy done in September, a CT scan of the Pouch also in September, blood work, etc. The last test I am waiting on is a stool test showing possible inflammation.
All tests completed have came back negative (not showing any issues that are attributing to my symptoms) I am in pain everyday, sore distended stomach, gassy, back pain and pelvic pain.
My gut is telling me I have some blockage, bowel thickening, scar tissue, or a combination of all that or something in that family. Anytime I eat anything not low fibre I am in stitches for days, and even when following low fibre most days I am still symptomatic.
I do not have a big medical background and I do not know what else could be wrong or what else to do. I have exhausted my GI specialist and she said she can’t really think of anything else to help me. My family doctor the same.
The only thing I have yet to do is get back in touch with my surgeon, but it’s so hard right now because of Covid and I live in Canada.
Does anyone have any recommendations of what else I can be testing for or requesting from my doctors?
I appreciate any help in advance,
Happy New Years,
