Dear Ina
Many of the food reactions that patients experience when they suffer from IBS are individual - one patient will develop bloating from lettuce, while the next patient will not. This is why it is so important to get the correct treatment from a gastroenterologist who will prescribe the necessary medication and advise if you also need to see a dietitian (to help you with cutting out offending foods) and a psychologist (to help you control stress).
It is perfectly possible that you may feel bloated when eating lettuce and that you need to avoid it in future.
Hope you feel better soon
