Hi zenco,Sorry to say but I've been going through this for years. I had my Gall bladder out about 12yrs ago and ive never been right since.

I've been through all the test including the ultimate test colonoscopy,about 6 Gastrologist all to no avail. I do take Lanzoprazole every morning which does seem to work on the bile. But as for IBS ive had that servere every day for years. Lots of people on here have had luck diets but not for me. I've also had no end of medication nothing seems to help me. But your symptoms sound just like me ,so you ever find relief let me know. Take care


Wow that long I think this been going more 4 years for me I just hope doctor I've got will help he really good but I keep my figures cross
