I have IBS and when I have a flare up, which is regular, I have about 10 trips there the toilet a day to empty my bowel, severe bloating and gurgling noises from my stomach, and I get intense pressure pain in my bladder and leak urine before I can get to the toilet. I wear plastic pants and pads continuously which restrict me and it’s just so hard. Had a colonoscopy a year ago, trying meds etc, but just feel horrible and lost all my confidence. Pads stink and feel I have to wear plastic pants to hide smell but am very sore all the time and feel so self conscious.
