“I had my gall bladder removed and my IBS symptoms showed up about 6 months later. Believe me, i understand that pain completely. Its been about 2 years now. I’ve lived on Imodium (immodium) and Welchol. However i have developed spine problems and am given pain medication and my IBS all but went away. I still get an attack at least once a week but its a lot better than 5 times a day, every day. I actually got my appetite back.

One other thing stay away from fried fatty foods, it will make your symptoms worse, eat lots of fiber and protein.”
