Two years ago, when I had Guillain Barré Syndrome, my bowels along with my body stopped working. Now I'm as well as I'm going to be (still can't feel my fingers or feet properly, balance is poor etc etc), but my bowels still don't work properly.
The first time I was hoisted from my bed in intensive care, I managed a fantastic joint burp and fart which amused me, but the burp tasted a bit eggy, which I'd never experienced before.
The next six months brought a phase of being either constipated or having diarrhoea, accompanied by some awful brown smelly vomit that was a bit poo like in itself (I think it was actually poo sick) and this happened every other day.
Two years on and I still feel a bit sicky every few days, but the poo thing is still going on, just over a longer period, I'm ok(ish) for a while, then I start getting the eggy taste in my mouth for a day or so,, followed by a few days of diarrhoea. Is this what IBS, sounds like, or is it a hang up from the GBS, I worked faultlessly in this department prior to my time in hospital.
