i'm 35 yrs. old and i have CI too.
possible treatments for CI, I can tell you that all what the docs. have to offer for the treatment of CI is just taking laxatives as much as you need, and as long as it helps you, keep taking them. but when you get to the point you can't go on this way, b/c it takes over your life and you no longer have ANY quality of life whatsoever, then a total colectomy is your only option to regain your life back.
there's no magical or easy solution in our case.
there's a thraed on this board called TOTAL COLECTOMY PART 20 and that's the CI girls thread and you're welcome to join us there if you wish. and maybe you will find more answers to your questions there.
good luck to you.
