| | Going to get colonoscopy..is it needed?
If you are ever on the Bowel Disorder site then you know about my symptoms but here they are..To make a long story short...for about 6 weeks I have been constipated for the most part (maybe Ill go once a week..a little piece) Fiber didnt seem to help, an enema barely worked, ex lax worked but cramping. Colonic cleansing just let out water. If I eat I get very bloated and can look a few months pregnant. I have gained about 4 lbs. A bottle of Miralax didnt even work.
so i went to a specialist today and he gave me Zelnorm and told me to take Benefiber. He says I have IBS, spastic colon and maybe I get bloated because of air being trapped. I had an x-ray and it showed nothing but stool. The people in the other room said I dont need a colonosopy and he is just wanting to make more money. What could be my problem then?
