Has anyone ever had srugery for their IBS-C?I am trying to convince my new GI to do it because I went from a full functioning college athlete over four years ago, to someone who can barely stand for 10 minutes because of feeling so sick. I have gone through every test you can think of, twice over, and no doctor would help. My doc says the only way he would do it is if my sitz marker test showed that I had a slow moving colon. I have done the test before and it involves swallowing a pill with little rings in it and they x-ray it on day one and again on day 5 or 6. I have always gone on the fifth day but there is so much pain and bloating in those five days. There's no test to show them that. Anybody done the surgery before? Thanks.
