I am unable to find any information in the materia medica about either colon polyps or colon strictures. My symptoms are such that my bowel movement gets to a certain point and then stops, never descending to the rectum. It feels as if something is obstructing my colon. If I strain really hard, I am able to pass a very small, skinny feces. I have been a Sulphur for 6yrs but my bowel has been steadily worsening for over 6 months now. My homeopath insists that I am still a Sulphur but then why are my bowel symptoms getting worse? On my own, I have tried Nat Mur and then Nux Vomica, both of which have similarities to Sulphur, but neither has done anything for me. I have done much research on the internet and have tried many, many non-homeopathic treatments but nothing has helped. I am going in for a colonoscopy in a few days and there will probably be one of 3 outcomes: 1) the doctor finds a stricture and then wants to surgically remove that section of my colon; 2) the doctor finds and then removes colon polyps, but from what I've read, they will probably grow back and I will keep having to have them removed; 3) the doctor will find nothing wrong and will tell me that I will just have to learn to live with my situation. Sorry for this being so long, but not being able to have a normal bowel movement is making me feel quite ill and I am feeling somewhat frantic. If anyone has anything to contribute that might help me out, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you so much.
