The IBS just hits occasionally after 20+ yrs dealing with it.
Lately, just constant constipation but finally becoming almost under control w/stool softener and probiotics.
OAB - is best its been in 20+ yrs , but still require incontinence underwear, even with OAB med and Inter-stim, and post-5 bladder surgeries.
Often pain in bottom of abd., lower pack, upper back .. cause undetermined ..but I BELIVE it is to do with the constipation issue.
