I had surgery to remove a tumor from my spine on 1-13-02, they called it a sacral tumor. i was told it was the nerve that controls the bladder and the bowel. 7 months before it was removed, i became physically ill, by that i mean nausea, vomitting every day, horrible pain in my entire abdomen, especially during a bowel movement (usually diahrea), I had previosly been diagnosed with IBS, fibromialgia, and arthritis. Every test that could be done, was. With no clear answers. a colonoscopy revealed 3 polyps, 2 benign, and 1 precancerous. They were removed.
I have a great deal of pain in my feet, legs, my hips, and my behind. My abdominal oain in still there, it almost seems worse.
i read on the web, that tumors on the specific nerve(s-1) can affect the digestinal system. Is this true? I feel lost because, my gastro doc is just treating me with nexium, compazine.
hope you can help, thankyou
