All the bad stuff: is rather ruled out completely. Ovarian cancer would be totally ruled out (and would be classic for these symptoms) You are, too young for it, too. http://www.nerdpocalypse.net/diseases/irritable%20bowel.html Other associated symptoms. Pain, bloating, gas, rumbling stomach or pain association with defecation strongly suggest IBS. ...Read more

I had a colonoscopy yesterday. The diarrhea has not stopped since taking the MoviPrep the day before the procedure. Can I now take an anti diarrheal? Is there anything else I can do? Thanks!

Probably: You will still need to do the prep in order to have a completely cleaned out colon. If a polyp or something else is seen and a biopsy is needed then electro cautery is used and any residual gas in the colon from an incomplete prep may be ignited if you are a methane producer. But if you have not eaten much then the prep may not be, shall we say, as productive, but it would still be effective. ...Read more
