Many people have volunteered their advice before and it was a fantastic help so I'm back again to ask again.
My son has a colonoscopy in a couple of weeks time, he has coeliac disease and IBS-D which does not appear to be resolving despite sticking to a gluten free diet, so I am assuming the colonoscopy is to rule out anything more sinister.
On a previous posters suggestion he has tried enterosgel but he tells me that has not helped much either.
He needs to open his bowels almost as soon as he has eaten and he is choosing not to eat if he has to go to lectures, tutorials (he's at uni) which are often in the afternoons so he is effectively eating only in the evenings.
He has been prescribed amtryptiline (10 mg or mcg) but it hasn't stopped the IBS.
He was tested last year for vit D status and advised to take a supplement for 8 weeks but when we asked what his levels were no one was able to locate the results, the Drs will only test vit levels once per year so we do not know if he has improved since supplementation.Heis continuing with vit D and multivitamins.
I am travelling up to the hospital on the day of his colonoscopy to be there when he has had it done, so that I can accompany him home for a few days (we live 200+ miles from the uni) what I wanted to know is what should we be asking the consultant , hopefully I shall be there when he is done in case he is sedated. I feel we have been on this very slow treadmill for ever and we need to know what's going on.
Apologies for the lengthy post.
