Discussions that mention bentyl

Bowel Disorders board


I am scared that I may be facing the removal of my colon. I want to know what its like, and the different types of surgery there are. i really do NOT want to have a bag attached to my body for the rest of my life. I am only 29 and I am newly married. Is there a way they can take your colon out and you dont have to have a bag, and you can still go poo poo? I have horrific microscopic colitis and I have been in pain for 5 months, every day, all day.
I have tried all the pills, pentasa, asocol, prenisone, pamine, bentyl, zoloft, advil, xanax, nexium, entocort, sulfasalizine, and now I am still in agony.
Doc thinks I may need surgery but hasnt explaine dit yet because he is pretty much really brief. I know, i need a new GI, and I am working on that. In the mean time. Can somebody explain to me what its liek to have y our colon removed? What to expect. I dont care about the surgery part, just the result, and my quality of life.

Thank you. :wave:
