Thank you all for your answers. They are helpful. I hope I get also some opinions form people with functional diseases who got colectomy/stoma. This would help to get a better picture.
It seems to me that docs do this surgeries for nearly every bad case of gut disease. UC, Mega Colon, colon cancer, extrem painful constipation, like Lauren has (hope you will find reflief soon). But a chronic case of IBS seems not worth it.
Really, I would like to handle the disease the other way. But that never worked. I tried every EVeRY drug, every approach , every therapy for this disease and after 10 years i still have no life.
