I have been suffering from D type IBS for 6 years now and have had no help by doctors. In the 6 years I have not been put on any meds or given any information about IBS. Then I found this website and was surprised at just how many sufferers there are. I posted a reply to one of the topics and someone replied to it. They told me to try a calcium supplement. At first I was doubtful, but I went out and purchased it and have been taking it now for a week (1/2 tablet at every meal). It has completely helped with the D and given me my confindence back. The anxiety and fear are slowly going away. I can finally go out of the house without the fear of having an accident. This is wonderful and I urge anyone who has had there gallbladder removed and has IBS to try it. The calcium helpes to absorb the bile that gets into you intestines after gallbladder surgery and soaks it up so that it does not irratate the intestines which causes the D. There are certain types of calciun supplements that IBS suffers can take one is Caltrate 600 Plus with Vitamin D and minerals.Too much magnesium can cause more D. Thankyou to the person that told me about this, You have given me hope.
