Still suffering

My story began several years ago.
I was told I had diverticulosis and was hospitalized on a few occasions. Finally had my sigmoid colon removed due to infection. I thought my troubles were over. No such luck ! I have both Ibs-c and ibs-d alternating. It has isolated me from many social activities. I have recently been diagnosed with breast cancer and the ibs has played hell with my treatment. Just going to Dr offices puts me in a dither. I sometimes have incontinence and this makes me very anxious as well. I'm not giving up! The ibs is worse on my nerves than the cancer but it's got to get better. My Dr says I'll get my life back and I trust he will.
