i had a painfull abdominal attack in jan 2018. I spent 4 days in the hospital and was treated with pain killers. I had minor pains for a month afterwards and diarrhea started every morning after that. there was no diagnoses as to the cause. cat scan, all lab tests and multiple stool tests were all negative.
in march I was put on prevalite and the diarrhea stopped at once. I was told it was due to my gallbladder being removed 8 yrs ago.
I just had my second attack last week, all tests were neg and the upper gi and lower gi showed nothing. based on all the neg test results ibs was suggested. I have diabetes and foot pain, im 72 and in good health. iwas told ibs is colon nerves acting up possibly because on the diabetes which is in control a1c 7.5
not to doubt the doctors but 8 months between major abdominal pain attacks seems like a long time. the next one maybe sooner. im much relieved that the scope test were negative.
