Re: Colon removal surgery?? !!! ??
If your tests are normal, I doubt anyone would recommend surgery. Have you ever been checked for gluten intolerance/celiac disease? Are you on medications that cause severe constipation? There are meds that promote peristalsis that are not laxatives, some that prevent spasm in GI tract, fiber preps that can help produce more frequent, normal stools, and dietary changes that can help. Regular exercise and plenty of water is necessary. A dietician who has a special interest in GI disorders could be helpful, as well as this board on IBS and constipation issues. Magnesium supplementation often helps regulate GI movement too.
