Re: Hardening of bowel wall?
I always thought that the descending bowel was my problem too, but I have had a colonoscopy and it showed nothing wrong. As far as what it said on the u/s report, it just said "upper left quadrant", and during the test she was just under my ribcage. I haven't ever used much medication for IBS, in fact I am very paranoid about pills. All I've ever tried is liquid Bentylol, which only lasted for about 2 weeks because it made me feel drunk all the time, and Dicetel whic lasted about 2 weeks as well because after taking it I was in the bathroom within an hour with doubling over pain. I have never dieted in my life because I am very thin. Actually right now, at 5'6" and 128 pounds, I am the heaviest I have ever been. As far as surgery goes, after 6 years of suffering, if surgery will fix it I will gladly polish the scalpel for the surgeon!
