Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hello. I'm Dr Chip
Sorry to hear about this
But what's your question please?
Did you have a stool culture and a screening for an H pylori bacterial stomach infection?
Were you given any treatment for IBS?
I don't see a need for a colonoscopy--this isn't colon cancer if that's what you're worried sbout
It also isn't inflammatory bowel disease like ulcerative coloitis
While it could be IBS it sounds like an H pylori bacterial stomach infection so I would do the stool screening for that
It's easily treated with a course of oral antibiotics and either Nexium or Pepcid
Please let me know if you need any more information
None of your symptoms are anything like colon cancer
I'm here if you ever need me again
