D/c from hospital.although every time I took a sip or bite to eat I would have pressure in my rectal area & abd. Which I told the dr. She asked if I had IBS ? I said I don't know. I was told to go to my PCP in a few wks if I wasn't better , I occasionally had pain constipation & diarrhea saw my PCP & was told it takes a while to get over gastroenteritis . Over the next 2 months I had problems on & off not everyday but enough to be concerned
