This is my first post to this BB and I have had IBS now for over a year and my stool consistency has totally changed.Since the IBS began I have yet to have a completely solid stool formation.Everyday The consistency is wet and pastey and needless to say difficult to clean off even with wipes.Sometimes I go through a full roll of toilet paper just to clean up.I've tried Fibercon,Metamucil,Citrucel etc to try and help with no success.Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.Scott

I use ground flax seed I buy in a health food store and I mix a few spoonfuls in yogurt followed by a big glass of water. This adds the bulk without that stringy like metamucil stool. It seems to provide firmer bulk. Although it doesn't always preven D------------------��-whereever you go there you are

Just a thought: Have you ever been gluten intolerant? It sounds like a malabsorptionproblem. There I go diagnosing again. Anyway, it's something to think about. Like you need one more thing to think about.Keep in touch and let us know.Jan
