    Just read you were able to get rid of your IBS, could you please explain how? I have it and also have a rectocele which will repaired on Sept. 6. Am worrying how the FM will flare after the procedure! Doc said the repair will also help the IBS, hope he is right.

    Good luck on your surgery. I will keep you in my prayers.

    I don't know whether the surgery will cause more of a flare or not. Some of our members do just fine and other do have a harder time recouperating. Surgery has not been a problem for me for the most part.

    Strangely enough, when I took Doxycycline for my chronic mycoplasma infection, my IBS cleared up. This leads me to believe that at least some IBS is caused by bacteria just as some ulcers are.

    Take care and keep us updated on how you are doing.

    Love, Mikie
