I feel for you, I am sorry to hear this is happening to you. I am pre-op and only 24 years old but I have had the same issues since I was in my late teens. I was first taken to the ER for an episode around age 17. It was one of the more frightening things I've dealt with. Anyway, I started seeing a gastroenterologist and was continuing the visits for several years. Test after test, procedure and therapy and on and on the cycle went... I eventually had no other options besides meeting with a surgeon for my almost completely dysfunctional intestinal tract. He came to me with a plan for a total collectomy alongside my gastric bypass... a bad idea in my opinion due to my age. I then transferred hospitals approx. 2 hours away for a second opinion. I then found a surgeon who felt very strongly that WLS would resolve most or all of my issues. And here I am, surgery set for Christmas Eve... Anyway, regardless of my story, surgery may not be the best thing but its in the cards when you have serious BM issues. Talk to a GI specialist if you aren't already, have some tests done and find out what is causing the issues. It is a terrible feeling and my heart goes out to you knowing how awful it really is. I hope it gets better!
