Hi simzee, I just noticed no one had answered you ? I have seen people write on this forum alot that they wanted or needed a bag. Ive had IBS-D for 25 yrs but I gurantee you a bag is not better. I have friends with one due to cancer and crhons. Its really not easier. For the last 2 days I have had wipe out sessoins. Canr get to far from bathroom. Going to start new medicine tommorow. I just keep hoping I will find something to work again. I have gotton relief from bad D over the years. After so long I am haviing trouble getting relief. Hang in there. If your Dr. is not helping you, go to another. There are treatments that work for awhile anyway. So sorry you are having so much D I really do feel your pain. take care.
