Jake---I'm glad you are seeing Dr. Rubin and I'm curious to hear how your visit goes. He is very smart, and very thorough so I hope he has some answers for you. I have similar problems to you where I feel constipated but then when I go it is often diarrhea. I was using Senokot, but I think I'm going to combine it now with Miralax.
Habs....it is always nice to hear from you and I'd love to hear an update as to how you are doing. I think I'm just feeling a little traumatized at the moment. I was eating a much bigger variety of foods.... 7 grain bread, small salads, cooked broccoli, apples, nuts, but I think I'm walking all of that back now. Looking back, I suspect what I defined as bad IBS may have been partial obstructions and I just wasn't recognizing it. I'm still feeling pretty awful today--not obstructed, but bloated, exhausted and weak. They told me I can go right back to work, but I'm self employed and my boss (me) says I should take the week off
I was just about
to audition for another play, but now I'm thinking maybe not, but we'll see how I feel over the next few days. Hope all is well with you!
