Well, I think most people on here are dealing with the flip side of colonic inertia whereas we have diarrhea instead of constipation. I at times get constipation because of the Remicade, but I did have someone close to me that was dx'd with your same issue. He was taking too many laxatives, and therefore his colon slowed down; the docs labeled it "lazy colon." It forgot what it was supposed to do because the laxatives did the job for the colon. Good that you are getting a colonoscopy to find out what the heck is going on. And welcome to the forum! You might also want to check out the IBS and Crohns forum too. They may be able to help with some of your questions. Take care, and let us know how your colonoscopy comes out.
