Hello all!I just got back from a work trip, which included sitting in a boat for 13 hours a day or more for 5 days straight with restricted bathroom access. 1 week before my GP prescribed me Buscopan. I take imodium along with the Buscopan 3 times a day before meals. While on ym trip, I felt almost normal, mind you barely ate more than a plain salad and a plain ham sanwich in fear I would react badly. I got a little of my confidence back for now and am going away for work again in 3 months. At my GP appointment, she didn't say but she kind of hinted that I may have IBD. That is her reasoning I believe for refering me to a GI. Now I won't see the GI for at least 2 months apparently so I wanted to get some input about this possibility. I know the differnece between the 2, but I don't have the bleeding in my BM's like you need with IBD. I do get it occasionally but it's not really in them, more so "around". My biggest issue as my doctor sees it is that colon cancer and ulcers run in my family. Has anyone ever gone through the IBS vs IBD before with their doctor? I know I'm getting a colonoscopy for sure, but I am wondering if you need EVERY symptom of IBD to actually have it. I know I have to wait to see if they find any uclers in my intestines, but I have't had weight loss (I also have hypothryroid so that may be why I'm not loosing weight).Any input to this situation would be greatly helpful. Thanks!
