    I have had a colonoscopy not during an attack but during a bad IBS episode. Your just gonna feel really drained. When you think nothing else could possibly come out, it can. Good luck! I hope you get results with a resolution. I’m new to Diverticulitis trying to figure out the diet part.

      The diet part is still hard for me, how did you know you have IBS? I did stool samples and my results came back today as all normal. But I’m bloated a lot, belchy and gassy. It’s hard to figure out diet. Best wishes to you. Hugs

      I don’t think there is a test to show IBS. I think it’s diagnosed by symptoms. My entire life I either have diarrhea mostly and sometimes constipation. I also suffer from anxiety. The 2 go hand in hand usually.
