Sooo I went to my gastro doc about a week ago (I havent been online in a LONG time haha) and he just basically did the typical "you have IBS deal with it and take this expensive stool sample so you wont bother me anymore" crap. How is BRIGHT yellow diarrhea normal? He says he's only worried when its black or pale colored. Whatever. The only other thing he said could be wrong is something like giardia which they tested for and other parasites, and came back negative. Idk what the crap is wrong but im not convinced its all IBS but oh well.
Anyway, I have a new intestinally-challenged person in my family. My aunt has been diagnosed with diverticulitis...and doesnt know anything about it. Does anyone have this, and have any helpful advice for her? Thanks! :)
