12 years ago I had Bowel Cancer removed and ileostomy.
3 years ago I was diagnosed with IBS ...I find it difficult to control I'm either constipated or very loose motions. I also take 3 Coloxyl
The constipation is so hard to move. I take 3 sachets of Movicol a day when it's bad but even that doesn't always work. It is so uncomfortable and my tummy swells up to an 8 months pregnant size. (I'm 72)
But I suffer no pain at all...just so big all my clothes won't fit.
Can anyone tell me if this is normal IBS.
My GP says my age is a lot to do with swelling.
Thank you for any help.
