Hi oneday,
I'm so sorry to read of your ruined vacation.  Hopefully you were able to squeeze in some good times as well.
Nst is right about the fiber... it might just help out your D by bulking it up.  I believe Fibagel is a stool softener.  I'm not sure why you would be on that if your problem is predominantly D.  What are the other 2 meds you're on?  If they aren't working, you might go back to your doc and ask for another.  It's quite common with antispasmodics to have to go through a couple to find one that works for you.
In a crunch (like when you're on vacation) you can always try fennel tea.  Fennel tea works as an antispasmodic.  I keep it on hand at home and at work.

Hope you're feeling better!

Have you ever recorded your worst bouts on the calendar to see if they correspond with your monthly cycle? I know you have PCOS and last I heard, weren't on BC. You may find, if you chart the pain and D and your periods, that there is a correlation.

My gyno has recommended an IUD for me. It releases hormones directly into the uterus, so it may be something that you can tolerate, unlike the regular pill. It's been in the US for 5 years, but my doctor said it has been in use in Europe for longer than that, so I would assume that it's available to you in the UK.

hi thnaks i know thta sometimes stress can bring it on worse. i was raelly stressed out at flying home from hoilday as it was the fisrt time i hvae flown. i am still suffering now. i canet stop giong to the loo and giong so many times. it is so anoygying. i am on two anitspasmoptics whcih donet seem to help much. i was given fibagel but i thuoght thta was for consipateion so i hvaenet taken it. i hvae tryied peppermint tea ans tablets. i hvae tryied loads of ibs meds. none hvae made much diffecnce.

wrok hvae commneted thta i am always in the loo. i guess i am but i raelly canet help it. i get so fed up wiht it. i seem to be able to go maybe an huor at most wiht out giong at mo. thsi is not bad as sometims i give up and sit on the loo. normaly bent over duolbe wiht pian. i hvae seen two gi's but one jsut siad stress whcih i no sometimes can happen but it is not thta all the time.

i am hvaeing a bad time at mo. i hvae been raelly down as i to go in hopsiatl for a operation. i aslo am beeing tested for cushing deasise. my haed is jsut all over the plcae and to top it off i hvae had an exam yestreday. i fuond it so hard to concentrate. i hvae pulled out of any other exams as there is no point. i canet study as to tired. i am gonna try fibagel and see if it helps.

i am seeing a phscologist at mo and a collcellor to help wiht prolbems.

thnaks sarah
