I'm glad I found this blog. I was diagnosed with IBS-C in 2010 when I was a teenager. I was on every medication possible and had several visits to the hospital. The constipation was so terrible that I had to have my stomach irrigated in the hospital with a tube down my nose and my throat. It was a miserable time for me. My doctor prescribed me Amitizia and it was a lifesaver for a long time. After a year and a half of taking it, I decided I found a better alternative- GNC psyllium fiber husk. They made the constipation go away almost immediately. I was SO happy!
After years of taking those capsules, I had normal bowel movements. However, recently, it's stopped working. My number one issue is incomplete evacuation. My stool doesn't form well even with fiber. When I spend hours in the bathroom, I still feel the stool "stuck" in my rectum. I usually wait for it to drop but that could be hours, if at all. Usually after waiting, I take a shower and clean myself out where MOST of the stool comes out. It's disgusting, and makes me sad. I just want it all to come out at one time. Does anyone have ANY solution?
I was back on Amitizia but it has now given me almost immediate diarrhea. Same with Linzess. I'm at my wit's end and I'm depressed. Any suggestions help...
