How many get right sided pain, not excruciating, but pain that limits your life on the right side several days every few weeks. Then it seems to go across the top (transverse colon) and then down the left side. But the appendix area up to almost my right breast is so full and distended feeling. Seems like I'm on an every2 or so week schedule. Last time I went to Gatorade pretty much exclusively for about 10 days and lost 11 pounds. Not necessarily diarrhea, but a full, bloated feeling and no appetite for food. Then finally after a week or more, a pretty normal stool and it smells sweet (sorry, TMI), but it does have a distinctive odor. I'm not diagnosed yet. Having my consult on wed for colonoscopy. CT in summer showed terminal ileum thickened and I've had symptoms for years and years off and on. I feel sometimes like if I could lay right and get burped almost that the air and bloating would come out and I would feel normal again. My doc thought my diarrhea spells are from GB removal, but they're not. I can eat fatty foods which should start an issue and nothing happens. Then other times I'm randomly a mess for two weeks plus regardless of what I eat.
