This is just another evening with diarrhia .No frequent trips but just sitting there for 30 minutes to just get the stool out and of course the usual cramping. What I don't understand is, why is my stool coming out first normal (sausage like ) and than looser and looser. This happens most of the time. Is this very typical for IBS that stool comes out normal and than gets looser or even watery towards the end ? Every time the diarrhia and the pain starts the anxiety about colon cancer starts too. It' just crazy ! I saw my psych nurse today ( she deals with people who have chronic illnesses) . She said that colon cancer doesn't come and go and it would get worse over time. I thought I might mention that since a lot of people on that board (including me) have a colon cancer phobia. Did anybody else hear from there doctor or nurse that colon cancer gets worse over time ?
