Re: IBS With Constipation

Hi Upshutter,

I used to get constipated in the manner you describe all the time. I controlled it using bile salts - but that was only possible when I knew I was going to suffer from constipation ahead of time (I just suffered from constipation all the time: So knowing ahead of time was easy). However, there was nothing I could do in the event of an unforeseen attack - except of course the standard enema and finger .... u know.

There is of course the possibility that prune juice might help you. I've heard people talk a lot about that - But I don't know what success rates there are.

Hope that helps you some.

Cheers, Raju.
