You need to be properly treated for IBS. You have a prominent gastrocolic reflex causing diarrhea after eating. There is treatment available and you should go back to your GI doctor and insist on being treated. If the GI doctor refuses to do anything or doesn't offer anything useful, then find one that will. The sad reality is that a lot of GI docs don't want to be bothered to treat IBS. Don't give up.
Try peppermint oil 20-30 minutes before meals. Avoid cold drinks. Use room temperature or warmer drinks. Have small meals
