If blood in stool has been excluded, you do not need to be concerned about it. Visit this site for information on food that may be useful for IBS. https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/wellness-and-prevention/fodmap-diet-what-you-need-to-know

When something is of concern to you, however one explains, it’s of no use. Faith in the physician comes with time and continued veracity of the physician. One thing is certain that all the physicians are in fiduciary relationship with their patients, meaning they can do only good to their patients. Hence relax, you just report the symptoms and leave all concerns for them. Hope it helps .
