Thanks everyone. My appointment is January 9. Had to change it because of a blizzard/ice storm. If all stays the same I will wait until then to ask about new rectal meds. Doing pretty good on Proctofoam and Align. I am afraid to add Metamucil as tried that twice in my life and could not adjust. My husband takes Metamucil for constipation (which I NEVER HAVE HAD). Iknow it can help - but Align keeps my stool solid, etc. so sticking with that but asking doc about a fiber, etc. I also eat bland mostly - no fiber food. He recommended that until I am healed.
I will take my Imodium as needed during the holidays to get to my sons and niece's (30 mile ride) and back. Also, having IBS, I have to deal with that too.
