I suffer from both IBS and Diverticulosis. I had a scan and colonoscopy last year. I recently had an ultrasound and parasite test as well as celiac test and blood work. All normal.
Colonoscopy and scan confirmed IBS and diverticulosis. Treated 4 times this year with antibiotics but diverticulitis never proven. Treated by clinical symptoms. This recent episode took me out of work for 5 weeks. Going back on Monday partial hours. A little worried as I also have
Anxiety. In the past 4 months I went down from 125 pounds to 108 pounds as I have had bad diarrhea. I seem to have bad triggers every two to three months. I feel like the bouts are becoming more and more uncontrollable.
Question: don't know what to eat anymore.
Tried fodmap for example and it says not to eat avocados. However I don't have a problem with them. Tried spelt bread and it got me worse. I am afraid of losing more weight as it is starting to look not healthy plus I have not taken my calcium.
Are vitamins OK to take?
Question: My GP ang Gastroenterologist think it is IBS. I see Surgeon in July 23 2015. What should I be asking? My GP feels that another scan would pose more radiation for me since I had radiation treatmemt 5 years ago for a benign skull base tumor. GP said he will let Surgeon decide. However if I have a choice should I ask for a colonodcopy instead?
