Hello ladies,I,m been reading some of your messages and I'm wondering how many of you have had hysterectomies? my friend and I have found that since our hyster's we both have been Dx with IBS-C. We have also found that when IBS-C atttacks that the bladder is also extremly irriated as will. So not only is there pain in the left lower colon but also right over the bladder. Which of course leads to CT-Scan to rule out appendsides. I have had a series of scopes/laperoscopies done the bladder is fine and there is no trace of any abnormalities in the abdomen wall. It appears that fiber is getting less affective, my friend now takes solible fiber twice a day and still has attacks.diet seems to help but not all the time.Stress is a big factor, unless you can just stay at home and do yoga all day long, most of us can not. So what is one to do? Searching for others,waterwitch.
