You know, this could be a good question to post in the Ostomies forum. ???
In my opinion... Because IBS is a problem with the digestive system, and not just the colon, I think you'd still have trouble. The gas, bloating and cramping probably wouldn't cease. Instead of trips to the toilet you'd be making trips to the bathroom to change the bag. Oh, not to mention you'd have to find a way to control the odor from the bag you're carrying around.
I agree with whoever asked the other day "Why can't we have a complete digestive transplant?"
