According to the Mayo Clinic "ischemic colitis" article that you cited,
Any part of the colon can be affected, but ischemic colitis usually causes pain on the left side of the belly area (abdomen).
When you were first diagnosed in 2014, you said that one of your original symptoms was "tenderness on the lower left side". My question now would be: If you are diagnosed with ischemic colitis at this point in time, have you had this condition all along, even before your LAR surgery, or could this be the result of some kind of damage that might have occurred due to the LAR procedure itself? -- i.e., could something have gone wrong in the surgery to block off some important blood vessels in your left abdominal area?
Are you still having abdominal tenderness in the same place that you had it before your surgery in 2014?
In the past year, you have experienced quite a few different health problems. Do you have a medical team that is able to look at all of your health problems at the same time to see if there is a pattern? Some of your non-cancer chronic illnesses may be requiring medications that are incompatible with each other and which then have undesirable side effects on bowel control. In my opinion, you need to have a medical team of several different kinds of specialists that can sit down together and look at your whole medical history and see how the different conditions, medications, and treatments are interacting with each other -- including any self-medication using non-prescription, Over-The-Counter products.
