I too always get up three hours before I have to go somewhere. Several poops - often so urgent that I can't get to the bathroom in time, then not as bad the rest of the day - though not reliable either. I usually take Immodium about an hour after I get up and again later if I am going out and want to up my odds of not having an accident. BUT sometimes, like last night, I went to bed feeling good while visions of nicely formed poop danced in my head. Then at 4AM I woke suddenly and had a huge bloody, runny poop on the way to the john. Such fun. Cleaning up me, my panties, the floor in the middle of the night. This is completely unpredictable and yucky!
Gotta love this darn illness!!
