| | degenerative discs & intestinal problems
[FONT=Arial]undefined[/FONT]I have had 3 back sugeries L4,L5,S1. The 1st 2 failed & I have had a 3rd about 1 1/2 yrs ago. The dr thinks it has healed, however, I am having severe intestinal problems. I have diarrhea & excrutiaing bowel pain. No one can determine why. To compound the problem, the dr who did the back surgeries has retired & the dr who has taken over is very reluctant to treat me. Please I am feeling very depressed. Not only do I have continued back pain (I have problems with 6 other discs), but I have the pain from the bowel problems. Has anyone had anything similar happen to them?
