I had a colon resection in Sept. and now am having symptoms of low grade fever, nausea, lack of appetite, burping and had diarrhea yesterday.

Are these symptoms of IBS??

Based on the fact that you're only a couple of months out from resection, I'd suggest you call your doctor. The fever could indicate infection, which needs to be addressed sooner, rather than later. As for IBS...the symptoms usually include cramping with alternating constipation/diarrhea. Be safe and call your doctor, ok?
