We've been giving our daughter psyllium powder now for about
a week. The fiber has helped immensely with urgency and with bulking up her stools. She is now going 1-3 times per day as opposed to 6-8 ! This is a huge improvement (thank you songlady for the suggestion).
My questions is...Does she need to stop taking the fiber before her Sigmoid (coming up on 10/12) ? If so, why? She will be doing a liquid diet starting Sunday after midnight and Monday nite 1 fleet enema. Tuesday morning about 2 hours before her scope she will do another fleet enema.
Is there anything else she needs to stop taking before the scope ? We are doing VSL #3 twice a day as well.
P.S. After having the VSL she will often have bloating and horrible smelling gas. Is this normal ? Anything to worry about ?
