You are doing right in seeing your Dr as IBS should be diagnosed by a Dr when all other tests prove ok,

is that black water in the toilet and black bits in stool part of ibs too? ive been reading alot and i highly doubt, but then again cancer feature is stated consistent black stools, which i dont have, where is that black water from then?
