I posted this over a year ago on this forum: http://www.ibsgroup....-a-problem-now/
The difference now is that I've gained weight (muscle), due to a healthy diet. I've weened myself completely off of Miralax. I take no laxatives anymore. I poop about every day with no complaints whatsoever.
Go read what I wrote, especially go to the nutritionfacts.org stuff. Don't do stupid things like fasting or limiting your fiber. Eat like a normal person. Except most Americans don't get enough fiber. See what I wrote about that. Now I get 70 to 80 grams of fiber in my diet every day.
nutritionfacts.org gives you hard science that you can bank on. The Internet will otherwise kill you by your asking Google about every one of your fears. Eat like your good old grandmother did. Eat food with lots of fiber. Eat fruit especially, I'll never forget how eating more fruit (especially apples) virtually fixed my chronic constipation in a matter of days- https://nutritionfacts.org/video/how-much-fruit-is-too-much/.
I know you're afraid, that's okay, I was really afraid too. See what I wrote in my earlier post about God. You can trust that He is with you always, that He loves you.
Again and finally, get off the Internet. Trying to figure out my own scientific solution led to doing the worst thing I ever did- I ate only jello for at least a month. And I was obsessed with laxative medicine. Very bad.
If I did it, you can do it! I believe in you!
