       Hi All,
     I was diagnosed with IBS about 12 years ago, but my main problem is consipation , it seems what ever i take won't work but one time. It always took me an hour on the pot for the last 10 years. Right now I am Taking stool softners, miralax and caster oil before i go to bed, well the caster oil before i go to bed. I haven't pooped for 4 days, I get my health care from the VA, I suppose to a GI doctor, but don't know when. IT seems like my stool gets hung up high in my bowels. The last tme I pooped , caster oil made me go. Any suggestion , Anyone.

I would insist that you get a colonscopy if you have not had one. With the VA sometimes you have to get a little pushy.
