Dyspepsia after multiple digestive surgeries?

I think it’s a good idea to do a total clean out and then colonoscopy. Once cleaned out they could tell you what to do to prevent the buildup. Like I said earlier, the large intestine can expand a lot to hold stool. The goal is to let it shrink again to normal size.
Motility problem seems to be quite common. The intestine has its own nervous system and it does not function correctly.
Like me, you may have more than one gastrointestinal problem. It was tough for me to realize I had so many different things going on- I learned to keep them separate, otherwise it’s overwhelming. It’s easier to deal with one issue at a time.

Thank you so much for the insight here, I learn more from people like you who have been through similar situations! Starting the C prep today with the procedure tomorrow. For the life of me I can't understand why my condition would all of a sudden change over (this past January) from doing pretty well to this. The pain that radiates into my back and up into the R shoulder is really hard to deal with, especially at night. So more of a motility issue in your opinion? With numerouse GI procedures/surgerys I have to think that did something to the way my body moves things through. Being an active guy this really sucks, I can't run now because it hurts too much from the up/down motion. Never have had to do this before in all my GI deals in the past.
