Does anyone have any ideas?

This is my first time at this site i have had ibs or something for about 4 years now. servere constipation and abdominal cramps, that are worse than childbirth. ive tried everything i can think of, i have been taking 3 lots of fybogel a day 30ml lactulose 3 times a day and 2 senna every night, i also make sure i drink plenty of water and fruit and veg. and nothing i've tried a number of things for the pain but nothing helps, i've had a flex sig and endoscopy but nothing showed up. and my consultant has basically said he cant find anything so just keep taking all the medication and go away. he said im seriously blocked up so im considering colonic hydrotherapy has anyone tried this? i started taking psyllium husks with good bacteria has anyone tried this? can someone plz help?

Re: Does anyone have any ideas?


Yes, I take Acidophilis caps on a regular basis and this really helps my stomach. I have also had colonic irrigation and found that this really helped my stomach also. I used to have predominantly diarrhea though, but it can be useful for both.

It is not uncomfortable at all to have it done, it just takes a little getting used to. Whilst you have the water in your bowel the practitioner will massage your belly to help clear things to get a good release. I had a lot of backed up mucus and after the procedure felt a lot better in myself generally as well as my belly. Had to sit on the toilet for about 20 mins post procedure as there was still stuff coming out, but afterwards I felt great.

Good luck
