Are you seeing some sort of counselor? Maybe you should talk to a professional who can help you with you PTSD. Maybe you could get some sort of anti-depressant or anti-anxiety med. Relieving stress helps IBS significantly.
Sorry I can't help you with your Lotronex problems. Oh, but I can say that Lotronex is the most powerful drug on the market (for this type of condition). It comes with serious side effects, but I'm sure you are aware of them given you must have signed that waiver. Scary. But some say it is the best risk they have taken because it worked. Sorry it doesn't seem to be working for you.
I hope you get some relief soon. Take care.
