Re: Slow transit time in bowel
I have had you on my mind since I read your message and just kept wondering what I would do if I had your problems. Having had GI problems for well over 30 years I thought I had problems but they are minor in contrast to yours.It is difficult for me to imagine what you have been through.
I have used homeopathic medicine for a long time(25 years). There is a remedy that just may work for you. It is "Hydrastis 30X". It has been used by people with poor digestion, weak muscular power and very obstinate constipation. Although I post alot on this board I don't suggest homeopathic remedies often but I use them weekly helping friends and relatives with good success.
As you may know I am a big believer in using water soluble fiber like Metamucil that is made up of psyllium seed husk. My experience has been --if this type water soluble fiber supplement causes you blockage then you are not drinking enough water or you have serious nerve damage.There are also many drugs that cause constipation. I have had or have Gerd, ulcers, diverticulitis, hemorrhoids ,gallbladder removed, IBS, etc. I have had almost every test that is conducted on the Digestive System.So I've had some experience.
I hope this helps.Let us know how you are doing---We care!!!
God Bless YOU---Harry<p>[This message has been edited by Harry (edited 02-11-2001).]
