I've had several discussions with you all and it's really comforting although nothing anyone had suggested has helped on a practical level. I'm really worried this time however as my usual large intake of stuff - copious senna and dulcoease - has produced no release at all and it's really uncomfortable.
I'm thinking about fibre products like fybrogel which I've avoided cos I don't want to add to the clogging - fibre being a bulking agent. I've always understood that soluble fibre as in fruits for example is ok but with slow transit, steer clear of other, non soluble fibre, cos it adds bulk which compounds the problem. Any comments would be most welcome.
Also any help at all would be lovely. I'm really getting to the point where I am tearing my hair out in a way. I am having appointments with a good colorectal dept and surgery isn't really an option so I've been told. I don't want that anyway as going under the knife can open a can of worms - so to speak! It's hard to control my thoughts and to steer clear of concerns such as, have I reached the point where nothing is doing to work any more. Also colonics don't help any more either.
What's the point indeed.
Best wishes to everyone,
