Thought this site might be different, but my original post gets lost in only a few replies…..Now that I know this site is of no help, I'm out.

Hi, I just wanted to add i cut back on stimulants, now stomach is calmer but the constipation is worse. I got put on them last year, but am afraid of everyday use, even if a Dr says its safe. Im getting a sibo test in the mail, so we will see what that says. My constipation just aggravates my body and inflammation. This weekend my Epstein barr virus reactivated, i missed my pelvic floor appt, just makes me so frustrated. Im just lost as what to do. Sorry this may seem like a blah, blah, poor me, but i have little support, and all of this is driving me mad. Ive in the past taken breaks, try not to think about it, free myself of appointments. I might get a little rest but that is time ive lost not working on this. Ive had most of my young adult life being plagued by this. I want an independent life, but my body is fighting against itself. Burn out is here again.

Surgery to take out part or most of colon.

I first did a colonic marker study (the pill) and all markers were still inside. Next did a colonoscopy, which was fine. Last of the tests were defecography, which was normal then Anorectal manometry, which found some pelvic floor dysfunction. Ive been doing pelvic floor therapy for awhile, hasnt helped much.
