A lot of people may not be able to understand, and I know there was a time I would not have understood either, back before my IBS and IBS anxiety took over my life. However, it gets to the point that the daily suffering grates on you, and I can't continue to live that way. My understanding from what I've read from Borody is there is at least a 50% chance of a complete cure. I'll talk to him and ask the success rates, though. To me, those odds are very good. I mean, who wouldn't buy a lottery ticket if you have 1 in 2 chance of winning?
People who don't have IBS simply don't understand what it's like, including most doctors.
