Soft stool after prostate cancer screening

Posted by Keith1952 in Keith1952's Blog, 27 March 2014 · 276 views

About three years ago I had a prostate cancer screening, at the time the doctor was very ruff while inserting the instrument that goes through the lining of the rectum and takes small simples of the prostate for testing.  Every since that time I have had loose stool and more gas then I usually ever had.  For several years I would have a sma...


Over 40 with IBS-d- what's working, what's not

Posted by scubaman888 in scubaman888's Blog, 26 March 2014 · 473 views

I've found some do's and don't's that may help others find there problematic foods and drinks. At least you can start by taking out what's worsening your ibs-d. So, coffee can be a huge "trigger" drink, and highly caffeinated drinks as well. Egg salad is giving some problems, too.
I'm trying some healthfood remedies as well. Diarsoothe seems to help q...


blog day one

Posted by gracesu in College with IBS, 17 March 2014 · 551 views

hey all 
I am a college student living with IBS which sucks. The school that I go to is not known for its food and most of the time I end up sitting in the bathroom for a while and we all know how that is. It is getting to the point where no matter what I eat my body rejects it and it is not fair. The other thing that I deal with all the time is...

Personal website?

Posted by Gena in Gena's Blog, 08 March 2014 · 386 views

I am thinking of starting a personal website for myself and maybe a few like minded people. I wanted to start a youtube page, mostly because I think I am hilarious, and because I usually find myself in random situations.
It is going to be difficult, especially if I remember to log on, but I noticed there are a lot of people that share similar experiences,...

I was right and will be quite no more. A lot of IBS is easily treatible.

Posted by sick2much in sick2much's Blog, 15 January 2014 · 1,053 views

I didn't want to be recognized because I hate the attention and I didn't want the medical community to hate me.  But guess what?  I am the one that had IBS reclassified.  I contacted the CDC because I was tired of the doctors using a symptom as a diagnosis.  The ###### doctors have figured me out so it doesn't matter to be quite now....

#nausea #pain #diarrhoea

My IBS starts in the morning, I'm up at silly o clock, and have bouts of diarrhoea, then start to feel sick, and then get abdominal pain this is all before I even think about having breakfast.
This has been my normal morning routine for about 3 months now. That's when I was told by my doctor "yes, you have IBS" Great I thought, now what do I do......


Abandoning Ketotifen

Posted by dECIBEL7 in dECIBEL7's Blog, 20 November 2013 · 630 views

As I stated in earlier blogs, it seems that some drugs work for people for a short time, they tell you it works, then disappear. I wanted to let everyone know that the Ketotifen never fully worked for me, at least not as well as Zyrtec. That being said, I've abandoned it's usage. I think mast cells, histamine, and Diamine Oxidase all have a lot of an...
