Best of luck and keep in touchDr. Amir Javed.
this is the third gastroenterologist i have visited. do you understand they are not listening to me? they say they see no air in the two x rays i have had. but they do
see stool. the cleansings do not seem to work and i do not know why. they seemed like they worked as i had bowel movements for 3 days until nothing else came out. when i ask them why this hasnt worked they have no answer. i feel if i suggest what you said then they will intimidate me again and accuse me of self diagnosing and i was told to "stay off the internet." one doctor refused to treat me again because i am adamant to find out why i am so large. this is a direct result of the colonoscopy. i was not constipated before it. and oddly enough i go up to 5 times a day now. after i told the present doctor that these procedures had no effect on me she said to just do it. i do not go out because of the embarrassment of my stomach protruding. i cannot fit in my clothes either. i do suffer from dysmorphia which makes me even more destraught in this situation.
this happened before and i went from doctor to doctor and was told either it was middle age bulge or i needed a gluten free diet. took me one whole year to find a doctor that would listen and he irrigated me. he no longer takes my insurance.
