ibs constipation
An_244556 posted:
This is too much info, I know, but I am at a loss! I have IBS with constipation and have had it for 11 years. In the beginning I would have hard bowels which made it hard to go to the bathroom. Since changing up my diet and drinking more water, over the past few years I very rarely have a problem with my stool being hard but yet I am still unable to get it out. It gets stuck in the rectum and I just can not push it out for days! It's very uncomfortable. Does anyone else have this problem or have any idea why? PLEASE HELP ME!

Yes I did too. I drink lots of water anyways, but it does not seem to help. Stool softners were a joke. I had tried everything, its an aweful feeling when you cannot go. I watch what I eat, I exercise more vegetables in my diet and everyday take Natures Secret, its a colon cleanser but it works for me.

Yes, I have this problem, too. After a bout with an anal fissure, my gastroenterologist put me on Polyethylene Glycol, an RX laxative. I still have occasional episodes of constipation, but also have problems fully expelling stool. I can feel it move to a certain point and then nothing! It can take a day or two for what I feel internally to come on out. And when it does, sometimes it's in increments, not the full load. So it may take several days to get rid of that feeling that something is in there. Because something IS in there!
