How can I be bloating like a pregnant Octomom?

How can I be bloating like a pregnant Octomom when I am on a diet of mostly protein drinks and baked chicken? I am 61 yrs old and have had IBS C since an infant (mother says I was born with a stomach) Have had about 12″ of intestines removed more than 20 years ago due to diverticulitis. Went thru all kinds of testing last summer with no conclusions or explanations except must be IBS. That is doctor speak for I DON’T KNOW

    That’s a really tough issue, julie61! I’m sure that’s incredibly uncomfortable. One of our contributors wrote an article about how her bloating makes her feel like she’s expecting, too. Have you ever tried an epsom salt bath for bloating? Here’s more information on that! Hope this helps. Take care! – Chris, IrritableBowelSyndrome.net Team Member
