I have bad IBS, I have never had colonic irgairtion but i did recently have a colonoscopy. My stomach, small intestines and bowel need to be emptied and cleaned out (was done with a special drink preparation)Afterwards i had bad constipation for about a week and bad stomach cramps (which were worser then before i had the procedure). During the procedure, air in blown into your bowel so you are bloated and gasy afterwards. But thats a different procedure. It may help, i suppose you could give it a try. But i would never do it, just in case that happens again. To treat my IBS i have 2 glasses of metamucil a day, drink 2 litres of water and take probiotic tablets. It really has helped me.
