I know I have posted about this in the past, but I didnt really get any responses. I am at my wits end and am going to try again.I tend to be more C. However, these days, I dont think I am typically C. I can usually go to the bathroom everyday. I dont get urges except pain telling me I need to move my bowels. The stool is usually right there pretty quick, but its often hard, dry and large. I have to strain quite often to get it out. I had a fecal impaction once before and had to got to the ER and I am PETRIFIED of this happening again.I do all I can to prevent hard dry stools. I drink 8-10 glasses of water a day and eat tons of fiber. That helps a little, but not enough.I cannot take fiber supplements because they make me worse, but I really do eat a very high-fiber diet.Does anyone have any advice for me. I need a long term solution. I cant live in fear like this anymore. I am obsessed with my bowels over fear of going to the ER again with that horrible pain.
