Bowel Discomfort

Hi all .

Would just like some advice please .

I have had this problem for sometime now (4-5 Years) , I am constantly bloated around my lower ab area (24hr a day) to the point that i can look pregnant (i'm male so its quite distressing) this can be worse for around 4 - 7 days during this time my stools change to thin and yellowish in color with the accosional blood on the toilet paper when i wipe , bowel movement is every day but when my stomach is very bloated this can make me feel like i'm in need of a movment but i'm not i don't get any urges to head for the toilet .

My doc says its IBS has given me some kind of fiber drink but this didn't help at all

Re: Bowel Discomfort


Have you had a colonoscopy? If not, it's a good idea...anytime you are having rectal bleeding it's good to go ahead and bite the bullet so to speak and get a colonoscopy done. Your remarks of looking pregnant reminds me of what nurse told husband years ago when he had diverticiulitis flare-ups. She said the men come in looking like they are pregnant when having flare-ups! IBS is normally a diagnosis after all other problems are eliminated. If you haven't had a colonoscopy, would definitely suggest you get one. It will put your mind at ease and also you will know exactly what you are dealing with after the colonoscopy.
