Hey guys new to this community just recently saw my doctor in regards to a few stomach issues
Basically a dull ache/pressure on the lower right abdomen which can appear randomly seems to come on after eating a meal
Also excess gas and bloating and slight pain can be relieved by passing gas or a bowel movement
Minor constipation but with no diarrhoea my doctor did a stool sample and had it tested which came back positive for a chemical named "calprotectin" which apparently is found in IBS patients as well as slight mucus in the stool
He would like me to go for a colonoscopy but it is expensive and I don't see why I would need to as I know IBS is just something that you have to alter your diet habits etc in order to keep it from flaring up
Does this ring bells for any of you ?
Thanks in advance
