My GP started me on an exclusion diet until we found what was the problem. I am wheat and dairy intolerant, as long as I am good and avoid the naughties I get by fine.

Well they got me into theatre and then said they didnt have any pain control for me as im allergic to morphine pethadine and codiene so they went ahead with only the sedation - and on my back as i have sciatica in both legs.
I woke up in ward thinking oh i shouted that was sore!!!!
Dr cme and said i had gone into distress twice so they gave up as i was distressed with the pain and he didnt want to continue so am home two sore sides and no answer.
Still havent got to the toilet since last monday!!!!!
Have put a letter away to my GP as i am annoyed frustrated and just really angry - it was nightmare from start to finish and i think not handled properly.

Has anybody tried activated charcoal tablets for this? They are supposed to work by absorbing any toxins in the digestive system, as activated charcoal has a massive surface area against volume. They are sold in pharmaceutical grade tablets and are totally inert so no drug side effects. I’ve seen it recommended for IBS but could just be sales hype. Might be worth a try though.

Boxes make good containers for cereals but not for thinking.
