I just love the "Gee it must be IBS" line that doctors give when they can't diagnose anything else. We've all been told that but quite frankly on a positive note, after you've had all the tests that you can possibly have I guess it's kind of good that it isn't anything more serious. You should have more tests though than just a colonoscopy. I'm one of those IBS'rs that have D and am affected with flare ups around my period an ovulation so I'm convinced that it's aggrevated by hormones and it could be that being 50 your hormones are getting all out of whack too!

Do what we all do and don't give up. Ask your doc, NO, DEMAND that your doc do more tests and take you more seriously than "gee it must be IBS".

Good luck and Oh, Welcome!!!
