  1. Welcome!
    Hi, my name is Bobbie. I am 28 years of age. I have always suffered from the inability to have frequent bowel movement. However it got worst in 2018. In October I did colonoscopy because I was able to pass my faeces for a week, in addition to that whenever i did pass my faeces before then there...

    Just a bit of background: I had suffered from stomach issues in the past and have been scoped twice (one in 2016 due to occult blood in stool and a second one in 2017 because of stomach pain and to make sure nothing was missed) both were clear and biopsies showed no signs of inflammation. The...
  3. GI-related Diagnostic Tests
    Hello, I am brand new to this site. I have Chronic Idiopathic Constipation and will also probably be diagnosed with IBS-C. Battled with Const. all my life. After lap surgery in 2005 I went 10 days and finally went to ER. I went to see a Gastro and told her how I've been feeling, she said...
  4. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    Just wondering: I was sort of diagnosed with IBS three months ago, but didn't get a colonoscopy done. Is that something my doctor missed? I did have x-rays and ultrasounds (abdominal as well as vaginal) and multiple blood, urine, and stool tests done. Should I insist on a colonoscopy? Did you?

    Hello, I had a colonoscopy two months ago, I started having upper epigastric and very low (colon pain) 10 days after the colonoscopy. I have no D or C but a definite change in bowel habits. I am getting tested for parasites but my MD said it is hard to find without D. I am going to request...

  7. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Anybody here have a colonoscopy? LOL I know you guys have, so I need some help! I had my procedure at 1:30pm, I was released at 3:00pm, and now it's 5:00pm, and I'm still gassy-not balloon gassy, but still passing a lot of gas, and that weird yellow watery stuff. How long does that last? I ate...

    Hey everyone, I've been having some problems and I'm not sure what to do. Most of my symptoms started last summer. When I had a bm I was noticing red and black spots in my stool. At first I ignored it but it kept happening, so I asked for a stool test from my PCP. Everything came back...

    Hey everyone, I'm new on this site and decided to post because I'm really at a bad place right now and I'm not so sure what to do. A little bit of backstory: I have been dealing with stomach issues (specifically bloating and gas) for about 2 years now. It was only last year when things started...
  10. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    hi, i have been struggling with chronic constpation all my life, but only recently it got severe and have been suffering with fecal impaction for about 3 months now with times in between, i was able to visit the toilet properly due to use of enema/8 laxido sachets - that was about the 3rd June...
  11. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    Hi, I recently had a rectal surgery and unfortunately got pretty backed up from the pain meds after. I had to take half a bowel prep (peglyte - 2L) to finally get things moving. I'm pretty sure I literally emptied my colon - which was really full as seen in the X-ray I had done before. I have...
  12. Your Story
    I'm a 50-year-old woman and I have had worsening gut pain for 20 years. It started as a low-level discomfort in the turn of my lower colon that increased in pain intensity over the years, and over the last two years I've had burning constant pain in my stomach and a strong feeling of pressure...
  13. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    I started with IBS-D in my late twenties and it was full-blown within a few years (meaning almost every time I ate, I had to visit the bathroom suddenly and urgently within a half hour or so). Some foods bothered me more than others. Since I have a job where I cannot get up and go freely, I...

    It all started May of last year. I'd been working on being healthy and eating good foods and I started to become more regular. Like every morning regular and I didn't think twice about it, I was happy cause I've never been regular! I've always been used to bulky, dark, constipated large...

    Hello, I'm a 24 year old female who is getting a colonoscopy done for the first time this Tuesday. I am scared to death over the prep. My ability to digest food changed overnight 2.5 years ago, and I have tried nearly everything such as eliminating foods that trigger extreme gas pains...
  17. Your Story
    All my life I've been accustomed to large, dark brown, infrequent stools. I had an insecurity with going to the bathroom anywhere but home, so I used to hold back on having any BM's which I know now is so not good to do. For the last few years or so, I've really tried to focus on being as...

    I am a 42 (almost 43) year old man who is in good health other than some issues with my digestion/elimination. It's mid-October now; over the past four months I've noticed, say, every 2-3 weeks, a single incident of explosive diarrhea. So, every 2-3 weeks I'll have a "flock of screaming geese"...

    I'm a 20 year old female with ongoing stomach pain, and diarrhea with a history of autoimmune diseases. I had a colonoscopy and endoscopy with biopsies on Thursday. Unfortunately there were complications with the procedure, the doctor had to use 3 different scopes (regular colonoscopy, pediatric...

    I was wondering did your doctor come out and tell you IBS right after your colonoscopy/endoscopy/etc? I'm having mine Tuesday (FINALLY!!!) and was wondering if they would tell me if it was Crohn's, Colitis, IBS... whatever it is right after or if you have to wait. TIA for answers.
