Hi, First post. Back in May of this year I ended up visiting the ER with severe abdominal pains. They checked my vitals, did imaging, and I was told I was fine and sent home. Everything was fine until September. Same pains, but now on a weekly basis. About 45 days ago, I was informed that I had IBS. I needed to make some changes in my eating habits. From the runs to constipation, back and forth. Due to having my spine fused, they also put me on Hydro-Codone for the pain, since the surgery went wrong. (They are installing a Spinal Cord Stimulator in a while to get off the drug). Makes you really constipated. I requested an endoscopy, which was done last week, and was informed the next day that I also have Intestinal Metaplasia. After mapping they found it in 6 areas. With this combination what is suggested? It is very difficult to get any straight answers form them.
