May 27, 2016 · Bowel obstructions caused by adhesions following abdominal surgery in Digestive Health

I take colyestramin for the diarrhea which was prescribed by my GI. I was getting B12 injections monthly until 2 months ago. I have tried gabepentine, lyrica, neuronton, and other meds for the neuropathy but could not handle the side effects. I am at my wits end with no diagnosis. My doctor looks at me like its all in my head. It is not. I have been tested for autonomic dysfunction and it was elevated on one of the tests, but the neurologist blew it off as being thrown off by the flexeril I take at bedtime. Now, that dr. refuses to see me or too refer me to another neurologist. I do not leaving my apartment, I feel so sick. What to do? I am certain this is caused from the 3 emergency surgeries I had when the first surgeon made mistakes inside me causing ARDS, SEPSIS and left me clinging to life. Its a very long and frustrating road trying to prove it. I did not have any of these symptoms prior to going through all of that trauma. Any suggestions?

I had 3 bowel obstructions all within 4 days due to adhesions. Ended up septic with ards and pneumonia and lung failure. God Bless the surgical team at Mayo in Rochester for saving my life. It is going on 3 years and I still have uncontrollable diarrhea, shortness of breath, sweat profusely, and unexplained neuropathy. I wish someone could help me with these ongoing systems.
