Thanks for your advice. I’ve cancelled my appointment but the hospital will schedule me if i decide to go in the future. My urologist is getting in touch with a therapist he knows to see if she does feedback therapy for my intestinal issues. She works with patients with blafder issues but not sure about my problems. Again, thank you for your suggestion.

Thanks so much for your prayers. I myself have numerous autoimmune problems and i also cannot handle traveling for that many hours, my joints would totally freeze up on me. There is nothing closer to home. Thinking about yoga and meditation at home.

Hi, i have a serious question.
Many years ago, i had vulvar cancer twice. Ive had surgery, chemo and radiation treatments. All of that has tremendously weakened my bladder and rectal spincter . i had my bladder tacked up and i have urinary incontinance and bowel incontinance. I take meds for my bladder but my gastroenterologist recommends me having biofeedback for my bowel problems.

My question is, has anyone ever had this problem and had biofeedback therapy and does it work? The reason i ask, is that i will have to travel 5 hours daily for treatments. If it isnt as good as my drs say, i dont want to waste my time daily. Please help!!

Hello jimhd,
Yes there are so many options out there with so little relief. Dealing with the pain, the depression, the pain, the depression……its a never ending vicious cycle that seems like no help in sight, but there is that one option out there that’ll help you and i do hope you find that relief very soon. Life is hard enough to deal with at times for everyone, but then there are people like us and others that have to deal with the chronic pain among our other health problems, it is very frustrating. I’ll keep you in my thoughts and pray relief finds you soon. Take care.

Dear lauriedr,
Thank you for all the wonderful information. I will discuss this with my doctors. BTW, my LFT’s are always elevated due to my cryptogenic cirhosis of the liver.

Hey mollyb 1968
Cryptogenic means they are unsure what exactly caused my cirrhosis. I have never been told about my ammonia levels being elevated but my LFTs are always elevated and my platelettes(spelling) have been running low. I hope this explained better.
