to harry

hey harry, i was just wondering, i asked you before about why i let out stools in pebbles and you told me that its because i havnt been drinking enough water with my metamucil, well for the past week i have been taking it with 18 ounces of water and i still have the problem. I got really backed up today so i used a glycerin depository and it got everything out. I noticed the first stools were in pebbles and then the next were two large stools like a snickers bar. I was wondering if they come out as pebbles because they stay in me too long, and i was wondering if you have any suggestions or info you can give me, thanks man

Re: to harry

That's intresting. Your colons job is to extract water from your stool. But, when you take a water soluble fiber and it absorbs water---it don't give it up very readily.It is a stool forming agent. So, the formed stool is what your suppose to get all the time.
The pepples could be something you ate in between taking the Water soluble fiber. The Metamucil container says ---take a dose 3 times daily.
