IBD Tests, IBS & LIS

Postby vdb324 » 16 Feb 2014, 18:45

Hi all,

Last week was a lot of medical tests for me to make sure I don't have IBD. I did an MRI, blood tests, colonoscopy, endoscopy and the video capsule pill. So far, nothing has indicated IBD, but I am still waiting on the video capsule results. The GI doctor said if nothing comes back from that, it's likely IBS.

So, it appears my LIS surgery is still on for the beginning of March. It makes me very nervous. If it is IBS, I likely have the alternating version, but there aren't really any treatments for IBS. I am hoping that after the LIS, I am able to keep the IBS at bay and hopefully prevent getting another AF. Anyone out there have IBS with LIS?

I've had IBS for over 20 years. It's now beginning to be the alternating type after years of diarrhea only type. I've had this fissure since Sept. 2012. I'm seeing a 4th surgeon at the Cleveland Clinic in March and will likely have LIS or something. Having IBS with this scares me to death but I can't deal with this pain anymore.
