Hi all.God I hate this IBS stuff. As you can see in my profile, I enjoy coaching youth sports. It's getting tougher and tougher to coach these sports when I continue to have problems with my IBS. Bathroom facilities are not always available when holding practices. It is also getting cause problems in my marriage. I dont really want to go out to eat and then go shopping night afterwards. Sometimes I dont make it 10 minutes before I need to find a restroom. Now. You all know what I mean. I was driving to work last week, 5:30AM, about 18 mile drive to the town I work in. You guessed it, halfway there, I gotta go. No place open, didn'thave time to find one anyway. Yep...had to turn around, drive back home, and change my pants. How embarrasing. But still, my wife doesn't understand it. She thinks I should be able to jump in the car and drive down the road at anytime of the day or night. I had my Gall Bladder taken out 5 yrs ago. Usually things would get better. For me, things go worse....and worse...and worse. My gastro doc doesnt really know what to do. In the last 5 yrs...I've had an Upper GI, Barium Enema, Endoscopy, Colonoscopy and Nuclear Medicine test to check the drip of my bile, since I dont have the Gall Bladder anymore. I did have a kidney stone that they had to go in and retrieve through my bladder. And I have had a few prostate infections, but those have all cleared up. My family and I are getting ready for our vacation to Florida, in about 10 days. I got real nervous when I start traveling in unfamiliar surroundings. Does everybody have the same problems with IBS that I do?
