Can anyone suggest my next best action to take??

I have been having severe diarrehea, severe cramping, sweats, drooling, almost feeling like I am going to pass out when I have to use the bathroom. I can hardly ever eat and when I do I suffer to no end! I always tell my husband, Please remind me what happens to me when I eat!

I have been back and forth to the doctors trying to find an answer for what is wrong with me. Back in 2005 they said it was IBS..then in 2007 they did a ultrasound, and said that my gallbladder was bad..so I had my gallbladder removed! But nothing has changed! My stools are nothing but water...yellow water...it has alot of mucus and tissue in it. The pain is unreal! I get clammy, sweaty, pale...my mouth waters like I am going to throw up...only threw up once thou! The pain is so bad, that I even get like chill bumps all over me. I will double over and just hold my stomach so tight while I am sitting there! I have seen blood before on the tissue, but I am not sure if it is from me having to wipe so much or something else! And I have brought all this to my doctors attention! But still nothing can be found!

Oh yea, I had a colonoscopy back in Dec. of 2006 it was clear! My family history is full of  Colon Cancer, Chron's Disease and other bowel problems.

I sure hope I can find an answer soon.

Have they done any scans of your liver or pancreas?

No, they have not done any scans of my liver or my pancreas!! But my pancreas was severly inflammed when they took out my gallbladder! I found out today that the blood work my doctor sent off came back...and it was positive for the H Pylori! So she is going to start me on the 2 week treatment for that!

Thanks for writting back!

Well that may certainly be the cause of your problems....if your symptoms don't resolve with the h pylori treatment then I'd see a gastro and have your liver and pancreas evaluated. Good luck and keep us posted.

My wife had her gallbladder removed 5 or 6 years ago and she had very similar symptoms to yours.  She went to an endocronologist and he put her on a bile binder.  Didn't matter what she ate it went right through her almost immediately.  Once she started taking the medication daily she was fine.  She was able to stop taking the medication after a year or so.  I also have a lady that works for me who had her gallbladder removed 3 years ago and she has to take medication every day.  She is fine as long as she takes the medicine.  Might be something to check into.  Good luck!

I know it doesn't sound like upper GI, but have you ever had a scope run down to test for ulcers?  If you have a bleeding a ulcer it could be causing your lower GI problems as well as your eating problems.  And, ulcers don't always bleed; they'll heal, return, etc.  It sounds like you're stressed enough to have something eating away at your stomach, like acid.  And, if this is happening and you're not eating, you're lacking the substance to push through anything solid, hence what is coming is likely just what's in your stomach...nothing but churning acid that's digesting a small amount of what you're attempting to eat.  And, if you have a history of ulcers (undiagnosed), this could have caused the opening to your intestines to have become a bit deformed from the damage as well, leading to other problems.  Check the upper intestinal, it all starts somewhere.

The darker the blood on the tissue, the further up the system it orginated.  The lighter the blood, the closer to the exit.  Hang in there and don't stop until you get some answers.  I completely sympathize since I've been there.

Thank you so much for your response! My doctor told me yesterday that the blood test she ran came back positive for H. Pylori! So I have been more than likely dealing with Peptic Ulcers! I took my first dose of the Prev-Pak this morning! I am praying that this is all that I have been dealing with! But the more I read up on Peptic Ulcers and for as long as mine has gone undiagnosed..I am scared there is more to it now!

I will keep you posted! And once again thank you for your response!
