Does anybody knows why this is happening?
 
I look at my colon when i bend bakward and it's swollen from gas. confused
 
I took Dulcolax 2 days ago to release the trapped crap but the gas are back with vengeance.I wonder if malabsortion of food can cause this.
 
This is ridiculous. yeah

If it is in the colon I think they say it is from undigested food mostly. It sounds like maybe a anti spas drug might help. Of course that is the opposite of the Dulcolax which increases movement. I find myself in that same situation. Don't know which I should take but the Dulcolax really does get rid of it. If you are constipated then perhaps you need to deal with that. ARe you taking Probiotics. As they do help with digestion. Trust me I know exactly how you feel though mine is more in stomach. I am happy when it gets to colon.

Dulcolax is the only way out.

I want to get Amitiza NOW but i'm from Quebec.

I really begin to think that the root of my problem is constipation.

I am thinking the same way. I think the anti spas drugs slow me down too much. I don't know much about Amitiza other than it is new. Have you tried to incease fiber? I am taking Pepto for bloating as well as Simethicone  for the gas. Other than that you could take a stool softener on a regular basis. Guess that is not addicitve.

Be warn,onion powder is EVERYWHERE.

I suspect it was the thing that gave me so much gas today.

Canyon, just wanted to add to your post that anti-spasms completely seized my system.  They are the kiss of death for those of us with C. 

Fiber supplemets - not so good, IMO.  Especially with gas and C issues.  I'd be better off pouring cement down my throat.

Magnesium, magnesium, magnesium.  That's all I'm gonna say. :-)

Magnesium is also good for leg cramps,etc. I wonder how much is safe. I also wonder why my Dr. gave me spaz meds, two different kinds.

I don't take it everyday like some folks.  I have a heart issue and mag can sometimes mess with heart beats.  I know you can find it in pill form and I am told you have to take a fairly large dose.  I just take as needed, in liquid form.  It can be purchased at any grocery store or pharmacy for just about a buck!
My doc gave me anti-spasm meds for years also.  It wasn't until I saw the 5th GI specialist (supposedly "best in the city") that he told me my chronic C could be partly the result of these meds.
