hi I’m wondering if anyone has experience using inulin for Constipation in Crohn’s. I have Crohn’s in the terminal ilium - I’m having a resection in a few weeks with a stoma fitting. Currently I have to take quite large doses of morphine alongside other constipating drugs and have several hemarrhoids too so often I get some constipation to deal with as well as the other charms Crohn’s brings. I find over the counter laxatives upset my gut-no end but have read so much good about inulin. I’m giving it a go, tentatively... lots of wind thus far but it is helping, I have had extra pain though, I’m wondering if anyone else is using it, has used it or has any advice about it. Will the pain and wind settle? I’m hoping it might help shift some of this internal fat I’ve gained with the past 18 months of steroids too... there seems to be so much good about it... any input greatly appreciated. Thank you
