Undiagnosed bowel issues

Last updated: June 2022

For years I had issues with going to the restroom. It started when I was 12. I have always been overweight and I always attributed that as my possible issue for going to the restroom multiple times in a row after eating a meal especially when it was out to eat in a restaurant. Nothing worse than going to the restroom and it turns into a diarrhea attack of biblical proportion. I went so much that I lost track at 20... And that was in a 2 hour span.

Appendix removal

I recently had appendicitis which resulted in them eventually removing my appendix. I got to say after the recovery period was over I have experienced a complete reverse of my issues and it’s a complete relief at 40 years old. I believe that most of my life my appendix was to blame for the inflammation and issues.
