My sister is an adult but she has learning disabilities so my mom helps with a lot of the appointments. I have been telling my mom for months now to push for a GI referral. I've said she really needs to get a colonoscopy at this point. She's had x-rays and ultrasounds and they don't show anything. She's given stool samples. I mean we went through all this with me when I was a child and I had all the classic symptoms!!! My mom should know better.
She is on no medications.
I don't accept IBS as an answer.
Judy, can anything be done for a bowel mobility problem? Healthy eating, exercise, fibre, elimination diet, etc has done nothing.
Thank you for all the replies. You've all reinforced my own thoughts that she NEEDS to see a GI and get a colonoscopy.
