I agree with the get a second opinion. OTOH Stress reduction techniques can help some people with IBS. Some of that has to do with the stress, but other parts of that may have to do with the interaction between the nerves that tell the brain that there is pain and the brain's reaction to the pain. Some of these techniques work for other pain problems, even ones the doctors are less likely to blame on stress.FWIW I have been doing Tai Chi seriously for the last 2.5 years. The school I am with is promoting a challange where you toss a coin off of the dantien (a point a few inches below the belly button). With the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and the IBS control I have been able to get the coin 6 inches up in the air!! Without setting off the IBS!!!K
