I am interested to see if anyone has the same symtoms I have. I am a 51 year old male, I believe I may have ibs. After having surgery in 2005 for a fishure I have developed this situation that is very upsetting. I have to be up for more that 3 hours before I can leave the house. I start with constipation and over the next three hours it turns to dirrarea. This is every single day of my life. I can not enjoy the things I have done in the past like fishing etc.. Not only that but this daily ritual is really getting to me. I can not help my wife with taking our son to school if she gets sick. I must plan out each day accordingly. I work for myself, but it is impossible to explain this to anyone. I am in pain after using the bathroom half a dozen times each morning. Let me add that I have always had some sort of this situation, but never as bad as it is right now. I did also have internal hemroids removed during the surgery as well. My family has a history of stomach problems as well.
Please let me know if anyone has had this experience.
