I starting see a Dr. at their Emory Crawford Long office in 2005 for stomach problems. For two yrs I went back and forth to that office telling them I was bleeding profusely from my rear end. They told me it was hemorrhoids. I was losing weight. They told me I was still within an acceptable wt limit for my body type. Near the end I had lost 30 lbs and looked like a cancer patient. I was so constipated for 2 yrs I could not go with out the use of prescription laxatives. Finally I went to the Dr. Osborn in Douglasville,GA because I became too weak to continue the trip into the city to go to Crawford Long. The last time I saw Dr. Osborn I told him that all of my symptoms had only gotten worse. I even showed him a before and after picture of the 30 pound weight loss I had suffered. Here is what he said,"I think that you are too caught up in your bowel movements. If you have one every two days you should be satisfied. After I showed him the picture he gave it back and said, you lost weight so what. He told me when your mind gets depressed your gut gets depressed. I suggest you change your diet. Two weeks after this I went on vacation to VA and ended up in the hospital. I spent 3 weeks in a trauma center in VA. I was in ICU twice and I almost died. They found I had blood clots in the veins leading away from my small intestines and a rare blood clotting disorder.
