    I have what you call "right-sided constipation." But I do have IBS and that is where the trouble starts with me. However, I had an infection in my colon one time after being in Mexico. Among the things I was able to read, my CAT-scan had a sentence in it that said "marked swelling of the decending colon." Hmmmmm?
