I'm looking for help or advice to Help me live with this.

I was sent for the joys of a colonoscopy in December 12 an was told by the hospital it was IBS/IBD - but that there was no Crohns/Colitis etc.

Phoned my doctors this morning and was asked by the doctor what was making me think I had IBS/IBD.........apparently, the hospital report came back with no mention of IBS.......and the doctor that has prescribed me buscopan hadn't updated anything.

Anyways - any hints or tips available???

I'd ask to be referred back to the gastroenterologist responsible for your colonoscopy and get things straightened out properly. It's difficult enough to get medical help with a confirmed diagnosis of IBS let alone without one. Try and get a referral to a dietitian as well.



My GI doctor was very kind and sympathetic. We finally succeeded in my having a complete colonoscopy and the results are diverticulosis (not painful) , a mucuous patch in the neighborhood of where I get my pain and since I also have PD my IBS-C pain is partly neuromuscular and partly diet. I told her about FODMAPs and she got all excited. She gave me referral to dietitians but haven't reached one yet. MEantime PT for ab pain helps!
