Be very very careful. I was told when I was 18 that if I did not have surgery and wear a colostomy bag for the rest of my life it could lead to life threatening complications. I ran from the hospital vowing to sooner die than subject myself to something such as that at such a young age and have endured 20 years of IBS. Remember doctors are human beings. Sometimes we reach a point where we think that because someone is a doctor, they can't be wrong. Obviously not the case. Surgery should be a last resort and I may be wrong here, but if you need surgery, you may well not have IBS. I have IBS. I have endured unimaginable pain from it. I am perfectly healthy otherwise. Find a way to avoid the pain. It can be debilitating but, IT GETS BETTER WITH TIME!!! Don't have surgery without at least five opinions and without reading, reading, reading. Good luck and God bless. PS. I am now in my late 30's and the picture of health other than having an inhuman capability to endure pain.
