I have IBS-C as well as diverticulotis. I am like you, have so much trouble with the fiber supplements. My doctor even tried to put me on a natural homemade fiber regimine. YUCK!!! The taste wasn't bad but the texture made me gag. I am now on Miralax and have been for about
6 months. I will admit that I had a bit of gas in the beginning but it wasn't the kind that just stays in you, I was easily able to release it (I took many walks outside LOL). Before the Miralax, I was going every 7-10 days and now I am able to go every 2-3 days which it may not be the ultimate goal, it is so much better than before.
You really do need to make sure that you find a way and I'm glad you are reaching out here. I have had two bouts of diverticulitis and I would not wish that on anyone. Next one, doc said I will probably have to have surgery but my last scope didn't show any progression of the disease so I think that the Miralax is helping.
