Severe gastritis,IBS.

I am kumar,residing in chennai.For the past 25 years I am suffering with digestive issues such as indigestion ,severe constipation,falling of mucus from stools,watery stools initially.I got endoscopy done 4 times and also colonoscopy done on one occasion.These tests indicated nothing serious other than non specific proctocolitis,IBS,Gastritis etc.I got stool tests done on 4 occasions and also culture test done on one occasion.In one of the tests presence of giardia was detected.But I have chronic loss of appetite,malabsorption of food,severe weight loss.My doctor who conducted endoscopy, was a general surgeon, who opined that due to accumulation of pathogenic microbes in the intestine is causing these digestive issues.I am afraid whether these long unsettled digestive issues may cause more serious problems such as cancer. Kindly advice.

Hello there...... Eat at regular times. Don't skip meals, and try to eat about the same time each day to help regulate bowel function.....as you're constipated, eating larger amounts of high-fiber foods may help move food through your intestines..... Exercise regularly. Exercise helps relieve depression and stress, stimulates normal contractions of your intestines....
