I had my colonoscopy yesterday recommended by my GI after rectum bleeding and constipation.
He said it could be cancer and I was petrified of the diagnosis.
They found nothing real bad thank God, no cancer or polyps.
She said I have Diverticular disease which she said is common, normal at my age (52 Y.O.) and non life threatening.
She said to increase fiber in my diet and to absolutely not poop hard. I already changed my diet with more fiber along with taking magnesium citrate and 1 TBSP of fiber supplement daily.
All this was making me poop soft. She said I have to stop the magnesium as it leads to heart problems.
She said to try to poop soft only with the high fiber diet.
I take 800mg of magnesium daily in the form of 2x400mg capsules daily.
How in the world do I stop the magnesium? I am afraid to stop it cold turkey and be constipated.
Thanks for your help
