Fistulas are not common in IBS, but they can happen to anyone, even with no other GI problems.We have a fistula support forum and they may be better able to answer your questions. While people with IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease) get them more often than anyone else, like I said they can happen to anyone. Anyway the Fistula information is in with the Inflammatory Bowel Disease part of the board. We are about to go into an upgrade, so I'm not sure the link will still be the same, but if you go to our main listing you should find it and if I get a chance once the board is back up I'll post the link so you can find that.Otherwise the loose stools are very common in IBS and a lot of people also have pelvic floor issues (although not needed for an IBS diagnosis they often go together) and I assume if you'd been having a lot of bloody diarrhea, unexplained fevers, or weight loss all out of proportion with what you eat (which are other symptoms of IBD and not part of IBS) you'd have noticed that and maybe even been sick enough to see the doctor for that even though you don't like them. http://www.ibsgroup.org/forums/index.php?/forum/64-fistula-support/ is the link to the fistula support forum.
