Hi this is my first post I hope someone can help
The past 6 weeks I've had problems with my bowel. I used to be regular once a day or so but now i suffer weeks of constipation, it seems to be food triggered like processed food so I'm steering clear of that but I'm still suffering. I've just gone 3 weeks with constipation and not passing stools for 4/5 days at a time and when I did it was hard pellets that were sometimes pale. Now I'm going what seems to be normal poo but about 4 times a day! I've also got a lump in my stomach low on right hand side which sticks out when I lay down or go in the bath and that's been there for around 6 weeks now.
I've suffered with endometriosis for years and had multiple operations and hysterectomy 2 years ago and ovaries out last year.
Do you think this problem sounds like ibs? Is it normal to have a lump? Could it be a blockage? Or do you think it could be scar tissue? I don't think it's endo related but then not 100% sure? I've got a Drs appt next week, can you guys offer me any advice in the meantime or what to ask the dr when I'm there?
I've tried fibregel the past few weeks but not really noticed a difference
Thanks in advance ☺️
