i have had IBS d symptoms since april 2010. then in 2011 my gb was removed after HIDA scan. the doctor said that HIDA scan has shown lower ejection fraction and that my IBS D might be due to it. he recommended removal of gb. after removal the symptoms have become worse.
now i have this almost constant pain on the left and right side of abdomen, and a burning sensation in stomach as well. post surgery there is some back pain as well..

Also get this wonderful under the rib pain. It's almost like gas, but like someone said, more painful like a stitch. Sometimes, on rare occasion, it makes me feel as though i can't breathe in it hurts so bad/feels so tight. I wish i could massage it but being under bone that makes it difficult! im glad to know it is not just me.

Hi, my names Dan i am 26 years old
Recently (within the last 2 or 3 weeks) I have had this stitch like pain under my right 2 ribs too and this scared me so I went to the docs who thought it was a slightly collapsed lung which is common in young men. I had a chest x ray and this showed nothing which scared me even more, I also suffer badly from anxiety, stress, depression so at this point as you can imagine all of these things are sky high.
So then I found that people with ibs have this problem too.. and thinking back I have always had problems with my bowels I use to get horrific stomach cramps when I was a teen which would vanish after going to the toilet. passing a stool was always very painful when I was just a small child I can remember crying about it.
Now days I often get gurgling noises and pretty bad wind, the odd constipation and floating stools so im thinking this is ibs I have.
I also have brain fog, dizzy spells, vertigo and some other symptoms and I was just wondering if this sounded like ibs to you guys? Also how long does the pain under the ribs last? sometimes I have gurgling noises coming from the same area of the pain and after that the pain eases up.
any replys or advice would be much appreciated.

I've been having similar issues with a wind/discomfort just under my lower left rib, almost feels like I could touch it. I've also had a few nights of terrible coccyx tailbone pain that has come and gone a couple times. Recently flatulence is way above normal and have been getting random pains around the abdominal area. It's been going on for around 3 months now and originally had a simoidoscopy to have a look at the lower bowel which came back clean. I also had an x-ray which was clear.
I'm not even certain it's IBS but seems to match the symptoms here and recently just tried excluding milk from my diet to see if this helps... it's too early to say but the symptoms are easing so will keep at it.
I've tried buscapan but that didn't really do anything, ibuprofen was mildly helpful and paracetamol was useless.
First thing in the morning it feels fine but as the day progresses it gets more noticeable. Stress levels have been relatively high but not so much that I'd have thought it would have effects like this.
I also had pain in buttocks occasionally, this can be greatly helped by doing the sciattica exercises (lying flat on your back, crossing one leg over the other's thigh and pulling the thigh up for 10 seconds and holding. Doing both legs like this for 3 reps gave pain free feeling for a while although the nagging stretch/discomfort on the left rib remained).
Posting in case these help others.

I also have these issues...... Bumping did anyone and I mean anyone find a mean anyone find a miracle drug?? Did you actually find what it was?? I don't think anyone should be in pain for the rest of their lives. I honestly do not think that is okay........

Different things work for different people. There is no one size fits all miracle.
If your doctor refuses to run you through the usual meds (antispasmodics and low dose antidepressants) then you may need to find another doctor that actually will treat IBS.
The other route that works very well for some people is the mind-body route. (clinical hypnotherapy)
Others can control it by reducing gas volume with a strict low fodmap diet and/or probiotics.
