Our expert says:
If you suffer from IBS, then this is also a condition that can be controlled by taking the correct medication and adjusting your diet. This is something that you need to see a Physician or a Gastroenterologist (dr who specialises in the digestive tract) about. Click on 'Diet' at the top of this page and do a search with 'IBS' to find the article I wrote this year on 'NEW LIGHT SHED ON IBS'. I would also get a second opinion about the gallstones because they too can cause pain and abdominal distress. If you have obtained medication from a Physician for your IBS and your symptoms persist then do speak to a surgeon about the gallstones.
