Question Colon problems anyone else?

I spent six months in the desert in 90 and 91. Now I have acid reflux and need parts of my colon removed. The Doctor said it is really rare to see a 33 year old with the problems I have. Does anyone have information that can help.

Dear Maggie HB User
Yes, this is out there

I'm learning more about the 'gulf war syndrome' vet and this is part of what can happen. I suspect ethylene glycol monobutyl ether from what I've learned so far; and it defats the skin -

Rashes and breaking of the skin internally, as well as external rashes, etc.

Just wondering if you have fatigue and if so, do you remember when it started and what you were doing then?
