Mcquiddy Posted July 21, 2021 Report Share Posted July 21, 2021 I recently have been diagnosed as having IBS. I do not know what to do about my symptoms of chronic constipation. My doctor put me on a LOWFODMAP diet. Since doing this I have lost about 10 lbs (3 week timespan) and struggle to eat at all. I do eat and keep a food log as well. My questions: 1. Can a colonoscopy prep and the procedure itself introduce something to give someone IBS? 2. Other than diet, are there any medications that actually work for IBS, without having a nasty side effect such as causing constipation or making some other body function suffer? 3. I have read that peppermint oil taken orally as a pill form helps. Does anyone do this and has it helped; and by how much? I realize this forum is for IBS-C. My symptoms resonate with this. Thank you for helping me get some answers. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
