Okay, this one is a new one to me. I had a colonoscopy a little over a year ago. Went back to the gastro guy to go over some things. He said at that time my colon was not a "pink" color, but a "brownish" color inside which usually is the color of someone who has abused laxatives. At the time I was IBS/D, but still I never took laxatives more than once a year if even that and it wasn't more than a dose of milk of magnesium. (like I said I was IBS/D). He asked even as a child? I asked my mom, she said no. I'm just a little confused on this one, have any of you heard this? And since I never took laxatives what's the deal? (I've since changed to IBS/C due to alot of endo surgery, and the most I take is Citracel and that isn't even daily). Go figure????
