I'm 31 and I've been gluten free for almost a year, not only with my food but w/ every products. I've always have had a history w/ my periods I.E. small clots cysts bad cramps. But since the IBS dx the clots are now the size of cutie oranges, severe watery D, and vomiting. I lost 5lbs in 3 days and was extremely weak. With an active 5 year old I can't afford to go down like that.

What about an ablation?  have you tried anything to suppress ovulation for an extended period of time? have had a D/C?    It makes me very nervous when a doc is going for the hyst in a person so young.

Good luck!  Try not to worry.  I have both IBS and had hysto when I was in my early 40's, it's not as bad as you think.  Let us know how you get on.

We have been suppressing ovulation w/ meds but my body isn't handling it very well. It's like it can sense the need to go into a cycle and can't and my bowel become inflame still killing my lower back. But she did an ultrasound and found evidence of a " spongey " uterus so now I go in for out patient procedure thru the belly button ( which the insurance wanted any way) this up coming week.

Thanks every1. I was never worried about having the hysto I was kind of looking forward to it lol, I was just wondering if it helped w/ the IBS or was hoping for to much. I know it's not a cure but I would be grateful for a 1% improvement....

Amanda, many times it can help with IBS symptoms, especially in the case of endometriosis.

I had my surgery after I had been gluten-free for 2 years. My bowel symptoms improved a lot in those 2 years, especially after I identified some additional food intolerances and cut those from my diet.

I can say that the monthly pain and diarreah that always accompanied my period went away, never to return.

I hope you sail through your surgery, recovery, and feel much, much better. I am betting you will:)
