Did the surgeon say anything about if the hemorrhoid could be a factor in the IBS? I always wonder about mind. I end up in pain when I am forced to manage my IBS with a few days of Immodium and then trying to recover... Painful movements. I also have tailbone issues so that whole region is tender. You will have to let us know if removing them has made any differences.

Well I hope your new diet does well for you . Iam going to my doc next week, see how that goes:) I did have low vitamin D last time I was there and they put me on a high regime of vitamin D for a few weeks. Now I just take calcium with vitamin D in it. I guess I'll find out if it's better soon:)
Keep us posted on your new nutritional diet. I would like to learn more about this:)

Okay, so ... I had a colorectal exam on Thursday, which was awkward, but not painful. This fellow is a colorectal surgeon, and he's going to remove a hemorrhoid for me, but he's also going to address my IBS (although he doesn't like the term). He has put me on a new nutrition routine, which I've done for the past few days, and so far I am seeing a change in my bowels... generally just more production and a smoother process, if you know what I mean.

The other news is that my new general practitioner got my lab results back, and I'm in good shape except that I have high cholesterol, so now I'm on an even healthier diet for that. I have to get the cholesterol down on my own within three months or go on a pill, so I'm determined to get it down. I'm also low on Vitamin D, and I'll be getting 50,000 i.u. a week for 8 weeks. Here we go. I hope everybody else is getting your regular check-ups and taking care of yourself. Let's keep doing this together.
