    Maybe IBS???

    I have had a kidney infection now for two weeks and prior to that have had bowel problems, but only on the weekends. I had my gall bladder out in 2009 and that is when the diarrhea started. These past two weeks, I have had nausea, vomitting, bloating and sever stomach cramps. At first, the doctors thought I had gastroenteritis, but when I went to the hospital they told me I have a kindey infection. Since then, I took two sulfur based antibiotics that made me throw up and have the worst stomach cramps. I have stopped those and now I only have stomach cramps in the morning. I have nausea and a sever loss of appetite, but by dinner time I am fine. My doctor said it could be IBS. I am not sure I believe this, nor do I want to. I am very afraid and I hope the stomach problems go away once my infection clears up completely. Any suggestions?
