: : Hi,i went to the lab today,picked up a kit,for 3 days i have to keep running there after stool samples i collect at home,for 3 days i have to do this! anyways,i wondered how many of you have had these tests,and what your results were,did it help?Thankyou! Krissy

: : PS- my Doc wants to see exactly if there is something causing the IBS,but he also says since i have had the same symptoms for so long,there is a good chance the cultures will show what it is,and doubts with any "new" symptoms not showing,it is IBS
: : C-Type

: Hey Krissy, I did a stool analysis too. Except mine was only a 1 day thing. I got the sample, and it was immediately sent off to a lab. You might want to check with the doctor to see what they are testing for. They can test for acid levels, which can be helpful for some people. And they can check the levels of both good and bad bacteria to see if any are messed up. Hey, I hope that test will give you back some useful info, because it did for me. Take care, alright? -Jacinta

Hi Jacinta,
I think i am being tested for just about everything,parasites,etc. He said 3 days is to be very accurate.What did the tests tell you? I am really hoping and praying this puts an end to all of this! Thanks for the reply,Krissy
