Harry,

My question is, what would happen if you took the psyllium husk regularly, but didn't get enough water? Would it still help any? My mother has had problems, for many years, with bowel movements occurring without prior feeling or notice. She's seen specialists etc. and the only thing left they say would be a colostomy. (one Dr. said they might have cut the muscle when she had a gall bladder surgery) One of the specialists had recommened Metamucil & I think she might have misunderstood how & why she was supposed to take it. She thought it was to help 'clean her out' so she wouldn't have an accident when she wanted to go somewhere. I've got her interested in maybe trying psyllium, but there's another problem. She doesn't drink fluids, never has. She has about 1/2 cup of coffee with meals and a sip of water with her pills. She MIGHT drink 2 sips of water on a 100 degree day after working in the garden for an hour. Her body seems to operate differently than others, she never ever sweats. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks, Ann S.
