I didn't want to say anything, am a bit superstitious... but I think my IBS symptoms are gone! I did have days with normal stools before, but this time even the gas seems to be gone. The colour of the stools has turned to brown and dark brown again and the consistency is good to hard. What makes me think it might be gone is the absence of gas - farts that all these months had not gone away. Should I hope? I don't know...I want to be happy about this and enjoy my "normality" but am afraid it will come back.
