Hi there and welcome! Hopefully some of our posters who are experienced with IBS will weigh in here to offer you some ideas and support.

Here is a link to some NIH (National Institutes of Health) information on IBS.

Hi Theresa and welcome!

Is your husband's problem severe enough that he has seen a doctor, or is he just dealing with it on his own?

Surprisingly, I have read, fiber can help with diarrhea, too, in people with IBS.

Good luck with your GI appointment. I will be waiting to hear what the doctor says. Try not to be too nervous. *hugs*
