I have had IBS for 20 years, was diagnosed with CFS 5 years ago after a series of infections and extreme stress, when I pushied myself over my limits. I was diagnosed then with slow transit constipation and the reason given was long term use of anti biotics for infection has interfered with the gut flora,
I have tried every diet there is, with no improvement, and every supplement recommended, as well as probiotics ( although not taken at the time ), but this seems to have improved the good bacteria but not the chronic constipation.
I have seen top nutritionists who have tried all the diets and supplements. I am on prucalopride (strong laxative to make the bowel work), bisocodyl daily, picolax weekly and peristene kit (like an enema).
The only option I have left is surgery so wondered if anyone else had anything similar to this?
