I was diagnosed with Gardner syndrome at birth. I had a total colectomy with illeoanal reservoir. Since the surgery, I have had several orthopedic issues with my spine and shoulder which cause my joints to be extremely flexible, often resulting in catastrophic problems from a minor injury. I also have had two spinal issues, so at the age of 30 I am looking at permanent pain management therapy as a possibility. I also have days where I am just completely out of gas by about 1 pm or can't go to work. My dad's side of the family is the same way - we all have this disorder. Is all this related to Gardner syndrome?
