I am wondering if there is a support group in Utah. I would love to meet up with people. Please let me know.
Are there any IBS support groups in the Salt Lake City or Ogden Utah area. If not, any one interest in getting one started contact me. Jeff R if you read this please contact me and let me know what it takes to get a support group in our area started Thanks.

I am from Salt Lake City, Utah. I have A LOT of experience, including 6 surgeries under my belt!

I can help. I have years of experience with this. And 6 god awful surgeries! I've had IBS with alternating bouts of constipation. The hemorrhoid surgeries were NOTHING compared to the S.T.A.R.R surgery I endured. I contemplated suicide. But I feel that I may have finally figured out what IBS is. Even if the doctors haven't. Keep in mind my blood work is always fine, and my colonoscopy was normal EXCEPT that I was born with 2 1/2 to 3 feet of extra colon.

I found it perplexing that my mother, of whom I took care of for 6 years, would only have a bowel movement once a week, and never complain of a stomach ache! I mean NEVER. Yet, if I went w/o a bowel movement for one day, I was in devastating pain. Why is that? The doctors made me feel like I was crazy. Even the colon rectal surgeon informed me that it was okay to go a few days w/o a bowel movement. But no matter what ANYONE said, I was miserable if I didn't go, or even worse sometimes if I feel as though I haven't gone completely. Am I alone? I too would love a support group.
