I appreciate all you who respond to one another. I had most of colon removed from colon cancer. About 1/3 of color left. That was 4 years ago and now I am crazy trying to figure out how to ease poop cramps. I am 66 so I guess I am still trying to heal but geez. I have had several tests with Gastro enterologist giving me major attention always searching my body. However I seem to have a lot of your symptoms of some type of IBS but doctor thinks Ibs is for younger people. Is that true and wonder why he believes that to be true . Thank you for your help everyone. What a pain in the a.. Problem!!
