: When you're on the fiber therapy and you have a couple of extra bad days with IBS, do you cut out or down on the fiber intake? I just went through a few "bad" days again, and without the fiber, it probably would have been diarrhea. With the fiber, it ends up being frequent movements with larger stools. (Sorry about bluntness, but no other way to explain it.) The latter tends to make me more sore internally, the former externally. I find it harder to heal internally...would it then be better to cut the fiber? Also, have you ever heard of anything serious developing, besides pain, if you don't have internal hemorrhoids removed? Thanks again for always being here, Ann.

Hi Ann,

Thanks by the way for your reply on my earlier message, and thanks to you too Harry.
It has been about 4 days that I was on fiber (citrucel) and it has helped a lot with controling the diarrhea, but today I also had a bad day. I was fine this morning, but then this afternoon I suddenly had 3 explosive BM's (sorry also for the graphic description...but for lack of better words). They also were not like the typical soft diarrhea but just frequent trips to the rest room with large volumes along with gas. the last one was more like the typical diarrhea. I guess I had the same question if this is just because I am not totally accustomed to the fiber yet. I think you answered my question though, Harry. This has happened before, and is what I meant by in my previous post that even with the fiber, sometimes I still get the diarrhea. Will the caps help prevent this more so than the powder, because I don't have caps yet from ordering in the mail. Thanks, Roger S.
