AAAHHHH....how long is okay to be C before worrying???? I'd give anything to have D right now! I used to have D all the time until about 3 years ago. Now I'm in a different cycle, and it's crappy!

Going as few as 3X a week is still in the normal range, so not going for a couple of days isn't a big concern.Not going for a couple of weeks generally starts getting you into the concern area.K.------------------I have no financial, academic, or any other stake in any commercial product mentioned by me.My story and what worked for me in greatly easing my IBS: http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/Forum17/HTML/000015.html

Before I had IBS, I never took notice when I would "go." I may have gone a week or so and not known. Anyway, when I did get IBS, it started with bloating as the first symptom, and I realized it was unbearable. After being treated for C and "exploding," I felt better. My sensitivity had changed and I needed to go to feel good.I say a person is only C when they are bloated, have discomfort and have not gone to the bathroom in 1-4 days in accordance with what he has eaten or when he is used to going.

what kind of herbal laxatives do you use... I've not tried anything other than Metamucil as of yet. Sometimes I go a week before anything moves, and even then it's not a normal amount.
