OK so I am getting fed up with the some days I am fine, some days I am uncomfortable, and some days I need to have a BM 3 times a day. I have been to my doctor twice already first time it wasn't my doctor as mine was gone that day he said I was constipated no I wasn't. Second time I saw my doctor he told me well not much really other than I can't have IBS as I am male and have good family health. He has retired so I am going to see another one. What should I have him test/check? My symptoms as of lately are multiple BM's a day no urgency just feel like I need to go. They aren't D but they are the size of a quarter of so and long. I had some pain last week for a bout 3 days. My usual symptoms are 1 maybe 2 loose BM's a day. some discomfort (not pain) and gas. What the hell else could it be if it wasn't IBS? I am so sick of the doctors in my area.
