I am new to this forum but just thought I would post here cuz I have some questions. For my 25th birthday (March 11th) I will be having my FIRST colonoscopy and endoscopy done. I have already had lab work to rule out sprue (colitis) and it was negative. I know something is wrong because I have very loose watery stools most days since 2001. I have MS but that will usually cause constipation not liquid stool!
I have read some on IBS and to be honest I am in total denial about the potentially devistating effect of this (although I have had stool incontinece at work!). What changes did you make in your life after you were diagnosed?
I know there are still plenty of other options out there about what I could have. This one sounds like the one to have cuz it is the most treatable, yet there is no real treatment... Plus a lot of the really nasty diagnosises carry along with weight loss and that has NOT been a problem for me! I can stool 7 times a day for a month and still gain 10 pounds!
I guess I am starting to get anxious about my visit coming up and need to vent! Any thoughts and info would be great!
