Two years ago I was hospitalized with ulcerative colitis. I haven't been the same since. I kept going back to my doctor
b/c of stomach pain and he finally said I had IBS, but didn't tell me what not/to eat. For the past week I've had pain on my right side, left side and down low. I"m bloated and have a very hard time going to the bathroom. I've taken DULCOLAX
laxatives three out of four days just so I can go. Then as soon as I eat, it's back to bloating and pain, but not always.
I am really confused on what I should and shouldn't be eating. I bought a ton of fiber stuff (cereal
, snacks, etc). Right after I had a new fiber snack bar today, the pain started up and hasn't subsided. I keep reading contradicting things: eat all wheat, high fiber
, veggies and fruits OR don't eat any of that stuff. I also had yogurt and a cheese string for lunch, not sure if that made it worse. Yesterday I felt great for the first time in a while (I didn't have the yogurt, if that matters.)
I need help. I don't know if I'm making matters worse or helping. I can't go to the doctors
until March 1st, b/c that's when our insurance
starts. Any advice is greatly appreciated!
