Post Had my colonoscopy today too and I still have problems

Nothing was found during my procedure. I went in because I am always constipated and when I eat, I blow up like a ballon and look pregnant. My doc thought I might have a blockage or pollup. My doc said to keep taking the Zelnorm (Ive been on it for 2 weeks and it isnt working) and see how it goes. Does anyone else suffer from this kind of bloating and distended stomach? What should I do about it since there is nothing wrong with my colon that the doc could see?
Oh a suggestion! DONT even try to drink the bottle of nulytely for the prep (a whole gallon) just do the lemon-ginger stuff from fleet from the store! (you only have to drink a glass, not 16!)

I have IBS and i get all bloated like that when i eat certain foods. Like pizza or things acidic. YOu might want to write down everything your eating during the day and that might be the cause of your problems. YOu could be alergic to something that your eating. Worth a try...

That is a good idea. My colonic therapist suggested food allergy testing. She said it is a good thing to do, but very pricy and insurance doesn't cover it.
