Hello, after a very long time diagnosed with ibs and bowel damage, a scan has shown that I have a very long colon. It also is misplaced and double looped and has damaged areas.
I have been to hospital many times with extreme pain and bleeding due to constipation, and now when things have got to past normal life have been warned that i need to be careful. As the blockage could cause a break in colon wall and could be life threatening.
Am being reviewed for surgery, anyone else been through this operation?
