Eric, thanks for the info, what would we all do without you. You keep us so well informed. The thing is though, I am still a little skeptical about hypnosis. That being said, I am totally for anything to avoid meds. It's also true that many people have found relief with hypnotherapy. It's just that some people can't be hypnotized, I think I am one. I could easily move the rocks blocking the water, but constipation is more challenging. So the battle continues. Maybe biofeedback could be worth a try. If hypnosis has worked for anyone, that's cool. Take care.

Thanks Kazzy,You might try the biofeedback for the C, especially for pelvic floor problems, it is certainly a treatment for them worth looking into that has been shown to help.Have you already tried HT, just curious?I really feel information and education is crucial for IBSers and treatments.

Hi Eric,No I haven't been tested for pelvic floor dysfunction, but it is a strong possibility, symptoms certainly match. I have never tried HP, I'm a bit of a skeptic, as I said. What is a Sitz marker? How do they do the test?

Sitz markers show up on an X-ray. They usually have some in capsules you take (the exact proticol may vary as to how you take them) then after a few days they X-ray you to see where they are/if they are still inside you.It is a measure of transit time.K.
