Has anyone gotten IBS 7 months after Fundoplication surgery. I have been recently diagnosed with IBS and would like to know if anyone else has experienced this or something similar. What did you do about it? What meds did you take? This IBS thing is debilitating and looking for support!

Hey there,

I had a fundo about 8 months ago, but I've also had IBS since I was a kid.

I can usually do a pretty good job of controlling it through diet. If I keep to a healthy diet of fruits/veggies/lean meats, I have very little trouble with my IBS. If I eat a big cheeseburger or something, I know I'm in for some trouble.

Since diet works for me, I don't really take any medications regularly for IBS. If you are having abdominal cramping, a common IBS symptom, then hyoscyamine is a good med for that. I always keep some on hand. They are small dissolving tablets that work well for me relieving cramping pain.
Learn lots. Don't judge. Laugh for no reason. Be nice. Seek happiness.
