I was just looking at some of the other forums in here and found your posting. I would really really go to your dr. and have him/her help you out with the IBS. I know nothing about crohns. Ask questions lots and lots of questions.

Take someone with you, so they can help you remember every single thing your doctor says (docs tend to gloss over advice, quickly).

Also take a notebook along and write it all down. Or even record the visit (although a doctor might find this odd....).

I know nothing about Crohn's either so I don't feel at all qualified to give out advice on diet, etc.
Marsky/Mary's story.....
- Diagnosed with rectal cancer, April 1999 - Stage I, no treatment necessary
(5 hour colon resection: 90% sigmoid removed, 15 inches of colon removed, gall bladder removed, given temporary colostomy)
- Colostomy reversal, June 1999
- Left with IBS/D symptoms, multiple bm's every day
- On a low residue diet at least 75% of the time
- Takes Colace 50 mg each evening

All in all I do okay, I just use the bathroom A LOT! But I survived and beat cancer!
