Oh dear....and the "specialist" that examined my mother 20 years ago never told her what the cause of this was. He never even told her family doctor what it was. That #$%!! idiot! My mom went to the hospital with blood being expelled somewhere from the intestine. Well they must have looked inside cause they said she had scarring (which if it had continued would have made her a candidate for a colostomy bag.) Why didn't the "specialist" find out what had happened? Why did they say "it resolved itself" and sent her home? She had no protocol to follow after that. Makes me so mad! I have bulimia which messes with my intestine. I have deep hash marks on my fingerprints because I have eaten incorrectly for 46 years of my life and just now am starting to correct things. WHAT HAPPENED TO MY MOM AT THAT TIME -- someone please help me find out!

20 years ago is a long time..
make sure you are not holding on to error thinking..
my mom had cancer when I was 1 year old.. I lived with that all my life.. MOM died at 91 from yet another cancer..
when I was 16 I was so worried that mom might get sick again that I threw up all over the sidewalk..
mom had colon cancer 10 years earlier.. she had surgery and all that could go wrong, yet she survived, and then went and lived her life until another cancer took her life strength. Yet to the end she lived with a happiness I can never match.. I am trying do do the same.. so mom could have died suddenly from old age, overnight, or give us all a chance to keep her for 8 month after the final cancer diagnosis.. She must have known after the treatment that she was not coming back as she did before, yet she never talked about it, other then on the last day when she told sis had to go away for the day : ALL is well don't worry".. by evening mom was gone..
Would I wish I never heared the word cancer, did not see my grandfather die from it, nor see others in my family having to have this or that removed starting at age 20 and their father dying at age 60 despite that he lived a healthy life and never had a day being sick.. My husband died over night while working.. I have no idea what is worse nor better..
BUT i am saying this not for the answer to your question, just to tell you that some things in life have no answers. Maybe mom did not want to hear the facts, maybe she had all the reassurance that she needed, maybe she past a gall stone, or some other thing popped - like cyst or some such - unless you get her medical records or find her doctor, you will not know and now the times have changed, we can find things easier and better, so why fret over olden days?? (my mom threw scar tissue at on age when that does not happen - so you see one never knows..
WHAT are they doing for her TODAY??
As for your own intestines. there is no doubt in my mind that Mom had something to do with it either not feeding you the foods you should have.not her fault! or her emotions made you insecure causing you problems - for you. Neither you or she are gaily.. life just happens that way.. .. I am sorry for either of your situations.. but YOU TAKING CARE of YOU is most important and this board will be here for you and so will the food plan work for you better then anything else I know of..
STAY strong and keep bad thinking away.. get in front of a mirror and say out loud : I like myself! and you might even say: I like my MOM.. Say it until we can hear it here.. and every fiber in your body will feel it too. as for history, it has its place, but answers are hard to chase and often they don't matter all that much.
I learned a long time ago that it always pays to ask: What matters in 5 years???.. and often the situation is long resolved by then and it does not matter at all..
I am sorry not to be of more help here..
Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

It doesn't matter. It was 20 years ago, and I don't know if they even keep medical records that long. I'm sure that your SWAMI will be accurate enough by entering the family history information you DO have.
I know very little about my son's biological father, and absolutely nothing about HIS mother. (He was adopted by his paternal grandparents at age 3.) I had been wondering if I should try to find out more about my son's family medical history, but Andrea assured me that it's not important. Whenever he gets a SWAMI some day, the information from my side of the family will be enough.
