  3. I have bowel issues, where I have feelings of incomplete bowel movements, often, sometimes alternating from constipation, and diarrhea, mostly constipation. I am straining when I have a bowel movement, I do get a "full" feeling, and dull pain, on the left side of my abdomen. It gets better when I have a bowel movement, but it starts back up once I eat something. I have not lost weight, in fact, im gaining weight, and there is no blood in my stool. I do have clear mucus in my stool often. My main complaints are the feeling of incomplete bowel movements, and the "full" feeling in the left side of my abdomen under the rib cage. Some days are worse than others. I am male, 25, and there is no family history of colon cancer. What is this im concerned thank you!

  5. The American College of Gastroenterology (ACG) annual meeting reported some observations from patients who were treated with Fecal Matter Transplantation (FMT) for an overgrowth of Clostridium Difficile (C Diff). C Diff is a very serious bowel infection that is difficult to resolve. It is usually caused by antibiotics. FMT has a greater than 90% cure rate for C Diff. However, two observations were made about patients who recovered from C Diff after FMT: 1) Postinfectious-IBS developed in 25% of those that received FMT for their C Diff. 2) Crohn's disease or Ulcerative Colitis patients were likely to have a flaring episode of their disease from the FMT treatment. It appears FMT has some risks and is not a completely benign treatment. FMT has been in clinical trials for the treatment of IBS for the last several years.
