Hi everyone, looking for help and advice, I was on a cruise in December 2015 and part way through the cruse I took ill, I was hooked up to drips on tablets and felt awful they diagnosed me with acute gastroenteritis. The moment I got home this was the start of my 8 months of hell. I was given 2 lots of antibiotics which didn't work, I was rushed to A&E with suspected appendicitis. So far I have been tested for ectopic pregnancy, bladder infection, had a scan for gall bladder issues and kidney stones, had the lovely experience of a colonoscopy, during the colonoscopy they told me I had polyps which have been removed and tested for cancer which was clear thanks goodness. I have been cleared for crohns. My last meeting with the consultant he did say he thinks it may be IBS I burst into tears as I am in constant pain in my lower tummy area, nothing seems to stop it and all foods seem to trigger this pain. He did press down again and I am now going for a CT Colonography Virual. I need advice has anyone else with IBS suffered like this and any advice I did start to follow a low fiber diet which did seem to help but I still had pain in the lower right but not as bad. Any help would be appreciated as I am totally fed up and just want an answer to what I have. I was hoping it was appendicitis so it would be a small op and all over and done with. I know this is a bit (understatement) of a rant but really need help as I can do my normal activities anymore
