Hey all,

So I am getting married in 4 months and something pretty horrible has just occurred to me... I have a ball gown wedding dress which makes me feel so special and was double the budgeted amount..
I am terrified I am going to have a flare up... I've looked at the "bridal buddy" and other ways that I can go to the loo on the day but none of them are quick lol
I cannot believe that it hasn't occurred to me before now.

Anyone have ideas?

Please and thank You!

Meg

It slowed things down with me, but caused me gas and made me nausea taking a minimal dose. I see she's tried it on her profile.


1/04/18: Pain's my main problem. IBS-D prone, but not with methylcellulose soluble non-gassy caplets still, 2 before anything eaten.  Also, 10C water/day (Have to if taking fiber supplement and soluble foods). Frequent, small and well chewed meals. No more salads, seeds or peel, whole grains, raw vegetables STILL. Have used in the past antispasmotics, low dose tricyclic anti-depressent (for ibs and inflammation)/both VERY drying even at low amounts and disorienting, CBD oil and IBgard's encapsulated peppermint (works better than older type enteric peppermint). Have occasional inflammation in illium at end of small intestine, but it was not crohns. Activated charcoal when needed for flatulence, simethicone only works on upper stomach area for upper gas (burping) right away btw, not flatulence at end of g.i. track. Tried Kratom, good but itchy and didn't prevent a flare up from eating a wrong foods. Raising dosage didn't kick down inflammation. Now back to being certified for (legally available here) medical high CBD Cannabis/Marijuana RSO (thick oil form), more expensive. I needed more anti-inflammitory help from the THC in regular cannabis oil, instead of just CBD oil.

Just read that activated charcoal can not only slow things down, but also absorb gas. Congratulations!smile.png
