Dr.Helena Deeney is the kindest, gentlest most attentive Doctor I have ever known. She made me feel she was my champion and that she'd leave no stone unturned to try to find out if there was something she could do to help make me better. I had had 20 years of misery after being diagnosed with Irritable bowel syndrome. I was told there was no treatment and the most they could suggest was to keep a food diary. Any time of day, I would get really bad pains in my tummy followed by the need to rush to the toilet immediately. I.B.S. affected every part of my life, I was afraid to leave the house, I was afraid whilst being at work, I was afraid of everything I ate and I was afraid of making any friends for fear of them asking me out and I'd have to explain my reasons for turning them down. My whole life was ruled by this horrible condition and by now i had completely given up on my food diary as It was happening about 20 minutes after almost every meal. I was feeling so miserable. I asked my doctor if I could be referred to the hospital in case a new treatment had been discovered. This was where I met Dr.Deeney and she has changed my life. From the very first moment of meeting her I felt so at ease and reassured that she was going to do everything in her power to help me. Maybe there wouldn't be anything she could do but she assured me she was going to try. I had a colonoscopy which was fine and then a SeCAT test in the Nuclear Medicine Department. The results showed I had 'Bile Acid Malabsorbtion' which meant the acid we produce, that should be reabsorbed and not go into the large bowel was passing through to my large bowel causing lots of pain and a need to rush to the toilet. I can't tell you how happy I was that a reason had been found for how I was. I hoped so much that the medicine (one 4g sachet Questran) (Colestyramine) would work and I'm so so happy to tell you that I have been taking the daily sachets for nearly 4 months and I am absolutely fine. I'd really like to think anyone diagnosed with I.B.S., and are suffering, would be able to be helped like I was and I'd also like to think that everybody could be lucky enough to have such an understanding, gentle, determined and reassuring doctor on their side as Dr.Helena Deeney.
