Like many other sufferers out there, I am unahppy about the limited professional help available to me.I have suffered for more than 20 years with this debilitating condition and have had various tests and various consultants tell me, when tests proved I did not require surgery, to go home, keep taking the tablets (in my case, codeine phosphate) watch what I eat and hope for the best. This is not good enough!! Surely, surely there is someone in this country(UK) who has a repututation for actually helping IBS sufferers and not just basically checking to see if we are in need of surgery? So please, please, if you are able to recommnend anyone , can you let me know? I am not expecting miracles, just someone who could help me set up a treatment plan to enable me to manage my condition efectively :to give me some quality to my life without the continual threat of an unexoected 'episode' or always having to check out where the toilet is: I could go on and on! If you are on this site, you will know what I mean.So, if you have any one person who has helped you, please can you say who it is? I do understand that just because you have found a person's intervention helpful,it might not work for me but it might be worth a try.Ever hopeful!
