Thyroid and IBS
Last year I was diagnoised with Thyroid cancer.  I had my thyroid completely removed and started taking eltroxin.  Everything seemed to be going fine until about 6 weeks ago.  I started having stomach cramps and bloating, full of gas and constipation.  I would not always have the symptoms and they vary from one to the other and in severity.  I went to see a gasto specialist who is going to do tests in a few weeks but has told me I more than likely have IBS.  What I'd like to know is if its related to the fact I have no thyroid and does it have anything to do with my thyroid levels.  I was told they are slightly over but I think they are supposed to be like that to reduce the risk of cancer coming back.  Has anyone else had thyroid problems which caused IBS and how did they cope with it.  I'd be so grateful if someone could help me with this as its driving me mad.  I don't think I can cope with having IBS.

Thanks for your help.
