I went to LRMC today because I have been having excruciating pain. Anytime I eat (No matter the amount) I end up having excruciating pain, diarrhea, nausea & headaches when I do have the BM. I have had this since I had a endoscopy on Sept 19, 2012. I know having dirria for a few days after is normal. But Since then isn't normal. Plus like I said I have been having really bad pain. I went to LRMC today & they took blood, pee test & X-Rays. After a few hours I was asked did they do a biopsy when they did the endoscopy. I said no that actually the Dr "aborted" it because I wasn't "cleaned out" properly.

There was still poop. (Ok that is all good so I thought). Then the Dr proceeded to tell me that I have a piece of metal stuck in my intestines. Then he asked do I have a clamp on or in my intestines. I told him the only clamps I have & know of are the ones on my tubes to keep me from getting pregnant. He said he seen that but this wasn't those clamps. I was totally puzzled. Then he asked did I swallow any metal..... Seriously???? Do I look like a child??? I told him I haven't swallowed any metal & the Dr said he didn't do anything that the procedure was "Aborted".

Then he said that on my last X-ray (when I had a cold & they did an X-Ray to make sure I didn't have pheumonia) that it wasn't there then. This last X-ray was done on August 20, 2012. As of today it shows up. The only procedure I have had since then is the endoscopy. He didn't even seem concerned that I am in pain, can't eat without having pain, & the fact that I don't know where this metal object came from. You would think he would have admitted me to see what it was (Since he had no clue) & to have it taken out to see if it does make me better...... NOPE..... sent me home.... I have come to the conclusion to NOT EAT! Thanks LRMC..... you really show you care!!!
