Stay with GI doc: You really need to maintain a strong, active rapport with your Gastroenterologist. You are at an age at which monitoring is essential, especially with a new IBS diagnosis. You need regular colonoscopy and EGD at least. For new IBS diagnosis, consider ultrasound, MRCP, CT and testing for gluten sensitivity.
