HOW IS FUNCTIONAL BOWEL DISORDER TREATED?
Any specific conditions which are diagnosed (e.g. reflux, hiatus hernia, gallstones) can be treated appropriately and this may then reduce the background level of functional bowel symptoms.
The management of functional bowel disorder itself usually involves a multi-disciplinary approach involving dieticians, gastro-enterologists and possibly specialists across other fields. South West Reflux work closely with a team of experts who can offer different insights into this holistic nature of care.

Many thanks for all your care, kindness and attention during my recent gallbladder problems.
My surgery has been more successful than I ever hoped for. From the time I woke up in the theatre recovery are to find I was able to take deep breath. I had not realised that I did not have the freedom to breathe deeply before the surgery. I simply thought that I was unfit as I was unable to exercise comfortably swimming, walking or Pilates. I feel so well and my quality of life has improved beyond any hopes.
Thank you very much for operating on me. I am now relishing in the consumption of double cream, pate, cheese and butter a thoroughly enjoying putting my weight back on!
