At the same time, I have increased my enemas to 7 nights a week, went gluten free and went to daily on Miralax and Increased water. Haven't increased fiber. All on my GI's recommendation for constipation and excess gas.
Symptoms: Racing to the bathroom, often not in time, and just leaking stool with plenty of gas. Gas pains would alert me to this dash to the toilet. Would have this happen more than every hour. Could not pass gas without leaking stool. Basically tethered to the toilet.
Now. no gas pains and running to the bathroom. But still constipated. What little stool that does come out is soft. Can pass gas without leaking (wonderful!!)
Of this regimen, what do you think is working? Any suggestion that I should add or subtract something... Do you think the enemas are doing anything or is it the lack of wheat? Do you think the constipation is related to UC?
