SANDY’S PERSONAL STORY

I am57 yr old cancer survivor, I was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2013. I went through chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. I know have a lot of problems with my bowels. My Dr. diagnosed me with IBS with constipation. I have severe bloating, so bad I look pregnant.
I have a lot of gas, burping and indigestion. Waiting for so long to see a GI Dr. I feel ignored by my family Dr. he does not take me seriously, all he says is you are Cancer free. I know I’m cancer free but these symptoms are affecting my life and mental health. Sometimes I think about suicide because I can’t take the pain any more. I now have 2 hernias because of the straining to much to have a BM.
