so sorry for all your problems.
i hope you have a good gastroenterologist.
have you tried any antispasmodics--like bentyl or librax? librax did wonders for my abdominal pain.
i see you're taking amitriptyline . hopefully it's helping with your pain but it can have constipation as a side effect.
also, as far as constipation is concerned, fiber can help relieve constipation for some people if the cause of their C is a lack of fiber to begin with but if you have slow transit constipation, fiber can make things worse. dumping more fiber in a colon that's already moving slowly can just back things up all the more. i found i did better with a diet low in fiber.
good luck. hope you can find some relief.
these are just my own thoughts. for expert medical advice please contact a health care professional.
