i've had diarrhea everyday since mid-March. i was perfectly normal until then. since that day, i have had diarrhea everyday. lost my appetite because i was "going" all of the time...not fun at all! i've had all of the tests...colonoscopy, egs, stool cultures, blood tests, upper gi, small bowel series, ultrasounds, cat scans, hida scans...you name it, i've had it.
i would suggest gatting a stool culture, if you haven't already, to rule out parasites, bacterias, etc. it could cause diarrhea like that.
since you have diarrhea after a meal, it sounds like IBS...but getting a colonoscopy sure wouldn't hurt anything! you don't remember a thing about the colonoscopy. i won't lie, i was VERY nervous and my blood pressure was high and my pulse was too before they took me in for the colonoscopy...but i'm only 26 and i had NEVER had something like that done before...not even had an IV in my arm. i was BOUND to be real nervous.
end result, they didn't find anything wrong in my colon and i have peace of mind knowing that. i would go ahead and get the colonoscopy because it won't hurt anything and you will know if anything is going on in there.
please postme if you ever want to talk!
i understand what you are feeling like.
