I have found quite a bit of information linking stress to IBS. My father who recently stopped drinking after 35 years and moved to a new home and job was just diagnosed and treated for volvolus cecal. I have read most cases of twisted intestines occur in small intestine and it is less common for the cecal area. but when I looked up stress and bowels there was more cases of large intestine troubles. The doctor that performed his surgery said he could not pin point a cause and there was no sign of cancer or pallups in the length removed.
