Suddenly understood about the disease
After initially struggling, Danson blamed his busy schedule and lifestyle. Danson, who worked as a hairdresser, was very busy. But after suddenly experiencing unbearable stomach pain, she went to the doctor and found out about Irritable Bowel Syndrome. She realized that something was serious. But she did not know what exactly.
What is Irritable Bowel Syndrome?
According to a report by NIDDK, a group of symptoms that can be bothersome to humans and can lead to an unbearable stomach ache is frequent pain in your abdomen and changes in your bowel movements, which can be diarrhea, constipation, or both. A large blister forms in the stomach. In which septic formation can be life threatening.
Danson had a stomach ulcer
She endured this for about 1 hour after the doctor’s round and then she had a colonoscopy, in which she found out what the disease was, but she was not strong enough to find out what it was. All she wanted was to get rid of this trouble.
Surgery consultation in just 24 hours
Irritable Bowel Syndrome had caused an abscess in her abdomen, which had developed septic. So she was given only 24 hours by the doctors and told to undergo surgery. In this surgery, the doctor removed an 18 inch part. Apart from that she was given an ileostomy bag after this surgery. But it was also said that this was an option for her life.
Symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome
Danson also shared his experience on what exactly are the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome
- Constant going to the toilet, about 15 to 20 times a day
- Having to go to the toilet
- Constant fatigue
- Unbearable knots in the stomach
Care to be taken after surgery
Avoid eating high fiber foods in the diet. Also, drinking green tea regularly, taking dietary supplements and not consuming caffeine are important precautions to take after surgery. Danson has also started holding workshops at the college to raise awareness of the disease and has created ‘Crohn’s and Colitis Support Lancashire’ to raise awareness of this invisible disease.
