Ibs before gastric bypass

Recommended Posts

I'm scheduled for surgery on 12/18. I have ibs-d. The surgeon thinks this will correct the ibs. Any opinions?

By lbs, do you mean lazy bowel syndrome (also known as intestinal dysmotility disorder)? 

If so, although I am not a doctor, from what I find on line the symptoms of lazy bowel syndrome can be dramatically reduced by weight loss.

I think you're asking about IBS-D  or Irritable Bowel Syndrome with Diarrhea??  Most of what I've read suggests that WLS generally improves IBS-D although there may be a temporary flair up in the immediate post-op period.  Hoping for the best outcome for you!
