I also have a redundant and tortuous colon. my colonoscopist didn't know much about the condition (the facts or causes).i had to brief him and my family doctor had never even heard of it. i suffered from it since i was a child because this is a congenital disorder, impacting my life severely. Apparently it's a rare disorder of the large intestine only diagnosed through a colonscopy or x-ray, and affecting 1 in every 500 people...that's 0.2% of the population. Practically everyone with this abnormal colon suffers from the same symptoms and illnesses - severe IBS pain/flatulence/bloating, severe constipation/haemorrhoids/rectal bleeding, malabsorption syndrome/leaky gut, hypothyroid, anemia, many food allergies/intolerances/celiacs disease, candida/yeast, insomnia, liver sluggishness, PMS issues, depression, moodswings, anger, exfoliative chelitis of the lips (super dry and rapid daily peeling), hypoglycemia (at times), chronic fatigue/weakness/fainting, adrenal fatigue and many times asthma or shortness of breath, and usually very dark circles/bags beneath the eyes etc...this eventually can lead to diabetes, arthritis and colon cancer/chrons disease/colitis. it's quite sad. best ways of coping with this is avoiding drugs at all costs which only exacerbate the symptoms. I was recommended Domperidone for gas everyday for life LOL. How ridiculous! sometimes these docs are so stupid, not to mention never listen...makes me wanna slap them silly.
see a holistic nutritionist/N.D., health food stores have whole food multivitamins. People with this condition are deficient in practically everything. Probiotics is a must...an alkaline diet is also essential. meat protein and fats are especially difficult to digest, you will see this when you get tested. You will need digestive enzymes and hydrochloric acid with bile. there is testing you can do for food intolerances, live blood cell analysis and full hormone panel testing, dhea-s and check everything. Most regular allopathic doctors don't know a thing about this. they can't help you. Exercise, hydrotherapy, drink plenty of water, fibre, fruits/veggies, cut down on proteins and fats, avoid sugar, take omega 3 fish supplements and make sure u do a multivitamin. Meditation, yoga, pranayama breathing help immensely, work on the stress! Candida Diet Protocol is advised!
It's unfortunate there is not much more we can do really unless you want to try colon surgery, which is very risky and the only country i know of that does it is the U.S. it's very risky cuz of all the nerves in the colon but most symptoms usually subside afterwards so it is pretty successful.
