aloe vera juice ?

Hi, I was wondering if anyone could tell me a little bit about aloe vera juice. My dr has said she thinks I may have ibs but I need to first recover from a hysterectomy before going to a specialist to find out. My main symptoms are very bad constipation, bloating and stomach pain. I have tried a high fiber diet, I drink the recommended amount of water a day, and take stool softners but nothing is helping. Out of desperation I have resorted to laxative use when it gets too bad. I read something about aloe vera juice so I went to the health food store and got some. There has been no relief after 2 days of drinking the recommended dosage of 4 oz daily (the juice is 99.5 %). My questions are: does this seem like the normal amount to take, how does everyone take it? (I take 2 oz in the am and 2 oz in the pm), and how long until I will see some relief? Thanks to all that can offer me advice.

Yes 4 oz. seems like the apropriate amount to take. It may take a while of regular use to see any results. Either way it's really good for you. I usually take it in the morning after drinking some water on an empty stomach.

I also bought some for this very reason as well but after reading the ingredients I'm wondering why is it good for me? Could someone enlighten me, it doesn't seem to have much of anything in it as far as nutrients, fiber, etc... go. It tastes icky too. Any advice from people who use this and has it really helped you?
