I have had IBS for about 20 years. I think I have been prescribed every medicine for it, with none of them really working! I suffer really badly with constipation and bloating, which can be extremely painful. I also get terrible trapped wind, which is painful and also embarrassing. I was recently diagnosed with having a rectacele which is a pocket in between your back passage and front where the feaceas gets stuck which can cause bloating and is very uncomfortable. I have been given my own 'home colonic' system from the hospital which helps massively when I am really constipated. It's called Coloplast. I have also started drinking a probiotic again to see if this works. I would try anything if it helped my symptoms.
