      I didn't find out about my IBS til I was 10 years old. But I have had it all my life. I didn't know abuse or trauma could bring it on though.

      Long ago. Had problems ever since. Had adhesions immediately after (age13). Then surgery to relieve them at 35 and I was told they come back. I expect that normally… my gut is sensitive without throwing a wrench into the works. Maybe that’s an applicable theory?

      So you got your appendicitis out

      I have to say the appendectomy seems to be a common denominator. I’m still trying to figure out how the adhesions could be causing inflammation

      Hi, I got diagnosed right around the same time as you? Mine stemmed from a horrible car accident in 2004, so a traumatic experience like that ? Caused my IBS to creep up and I was diagnosed in 2006. For years, I’ve worried different diets and etc . Recently I got COVID ? And now I’m back to having troopers and flares but my doctor put me on a LowFodMap diet. It seems to be working . And I’m happier again. So mental health is also key cuz it could really bring you down or make you more irritable and anxious.

      Hi My GI informed me that IBS stem from childhood abuse. I had it from a child and never knew but now as an adult my stomach hurts on and off and normal to not normal bowel movement. Sometimes it's frustrated but doing my best

      Hello. I see the appendectomy. Adhesions suck and seem to be a player in the ibs world. Every day is a challenge to get moving after a long morning in the bathroom. Keep working on your condition and at working as much as you can. Mental health is very important
