I was diagnosed with IBS when I was 18. I went without a problem until recently and I'm now 22. My problem is that my stool just seems to hard or too large to pass. I take Dulcolax but all that does is force a BM and a very very painful one at that. It causes bleeding, sometimes severe. I've done research but all the answers are for preventative treatment, not how to get this mess out without endangering my health. I cannot go through anymore of this! The things that can result from this problem are dangerous. Intestinal looping (or knots) that are FATAL, intestinal inversion (stool isn't the only thing that'll come out), and multiple infections...I'm begging for help! All I need is something that will turn the hard stool into D or at least soften it so I can pass it!
