Thanks for your replies. The MD back in February said he thought it was spastic colon, thought I was getting gas trapped up in the left corner under my ribs. Mostly the pain is there, sometimes it moves across to the other side. Sometimes it hurts to bend over. I had a colonoscopy 3 years ago which was clean, so he didn't think I'd need another.The biggest thing that's freaking me out is the brown mucus. Most cases of IBS I've read about mention a clear or opaque mucus. I'm going to reschedule an appt with him, but if anyone out there has had brown mucus on their stools, I think it'd make me feel a little better to hear I'm not alone!FYI - A few months after the colonoscopy I got a C-diff infection from antibiotics taken for a sinus infection. That took me months of Flagyl and Vanco to get over that. Everything was going okay with the stools for about 1 1/2 years before all of this started. And when I had the C-diff infection, I had pain in the exact same area.Any replies would be much appreciated!
