Yes, Please post your results! I am very interested to find new paths to relief for IBS-D and resulting (
Just wanted to check to see how you’re doing after your time in the ER, @angelgirl. Hope you have a good weekend. – Chris, IrritableBowelSyndrome.net Team
I do meditation too and walking helps sometimes. I’m am taking librax for the pain and it seems to help when the pain is mild to moderate. It is not helping now with the severe pain.
It sounds like you have a had a pretty rough month. Any type of surgery can be painful and extremely disruptive to one’s life. I think it makes sense that the IBS has been painful since the surgery, your body is healing and not up to full strength to deal with the illness. As far as pain management, I suppose that would be for the…
I have had IBS for 22 years. Sometimes it is mild with very few symptoms. Other times I have bouts for three months with lots of abdominal pain. I had my gallbladder removed on August 1st. My IBS has been quite painful since then Can surgery cause IBS to flair up? I will take any suggestions for pain management.
Thank you for your wonderful suggestions and positive thoughts. I don’t know where I would be without exercising and meditation. Thank you for contributing to the conversation and I hope you are well today. -Todd, IrritableBowelSyndrome.net Team
I can certainly relate to your experience! Sometimes when I’m traveling or I have an important business meeting to attend, I tend not to eat for a long time as well for the sake of avoiding a flare up.

Valid pts. I meant no disrespect. I celebrate any doc who is trying to focus on this debilitating whatever it is.
I know that feeling all too well. For a while, I was living with roommates and there was only one bathroom. They were unaware of my IBS, because I found it embarrassing to talk about it. I have IBS-M (aka: IBS-A). This always seems to happen when I am on the diarrhea side of things. One time, I almost went outside and had my diarrhea attack…
Thanks for your perspective, @explodingguts. You certainly make some valid points. My interpretation of Andrea’s post is that the doctor/patient relationship is something that needs to be brought back into focus for many people. Patients want answers, but oftentimes (especially in the IBS community), we also hear of patients yearning to be…
An excellent article and I do go to you guys because I don’t have a good Doctor or Gastro Doctor, they’re both busy and don’t have the time. If you can refer me to a good Gastro in my area that will talk with me about my IBS-D I would love to talk with him or a Dietician that understands this.
