Re: IBS and work
Hi, Frustrated. Yeah, I've been there, done that myself. I've had the "D" kind of IBS for 20+ years, and in the last 5 or so, it has worsened. Just in the last year, I missed several days of work because the "D" was so bad, I couldn't find a bathroom in time. Talk about humiliating! I would just call in sick and lay low for a couple days. In the last 3 months, I've had NO diarrhea since taking Colestid every morning. It's been a wonder drug for me. It's available by prescription only. It absorbs excess digestive bile, and creates formed stools. I also take calcium supplements and eat increased fiber (Metamucil wafers) for added bulk to my stools. So far, life has been wonderful! Good luck to you.
