I am lost

I am about to go to my 3rd GI in a year. The first one said I had UC, after a C-scope and Biopsy he put me on meds. When I was having trouble reaching him and not getting better I got a second opinion. The 2nd doctor said I was clean, no issue....stop taking meds. He also did a c-scope and biopsy and determined it is IBS not UC. It has been 5 months since then and though I don't feel as terrible as I did on the meds or when I first got sick in November 2011 I am still not back to normal. I have very inconsistent movement, battle nausea in the morning and mid day (5-7pm), re-flux and bad weight swings. 5-10 pounds in a week.

I know I have internal hemroids and I do see blood when I wipe. I am concerned that my inconstant movements could be from a blockage. My mom has Diverticulitis, My dad had prostate cancer and my younger brother had polyps (non cancerous)- Has anyone experienced this when 2 doctors with in 12 month had 2 distinctly different diagnoses.
