Has anyone been diagnosed with IBS and then had Gastric bypass surgery? Did the surgery make it worse it better? No change? Thanks!

Hello, I was diagnosed with IBS-C, I do not have any issues with the constipation anymore, I also use to take Linzess but I do not take that any more! If you are not careful of what you eat, you will have dumping syndrome and I have also noticed that if I am not drinking my Water like I should it will slow down my bowels, but I really do not believe I have anymore issues with the IBS. Good luck and hope this helped!

you may not even have dumping issues - only about 30% of us dump. I never have - although there are times I wish I did to keep me more in line!!

I was never formally diagnosed, but I suspected it for years. Almost immediately after weight loss it went away (though this could be do to the fact I ate way less). With that said, post-wls (sleeve) I do dump when I have too much sugar.
