My name is Stephaney and I am 29 years old and from Texas, but soon to be the Grand Canyon! I have IBS/gastritis/constipation/bowel issues for the last 3 or 4 years. Bowel issues are genetic in my family and my grandpa actually died from terminal stage 4 colon cancer and it killed him in 3 months within him finding out he had it. Plus his sisters and brothers have had bowel cancer removed and gone through chemo and whatnot. My aunts and uncles suffer from bowel issues as well and my aunt is the only one that is doing something about hers. She has shifted to a gluten free diet, like something for someone with celiac disease. I am only taking bentyl (like candy) and I just now started doing fiber therapy, taking Methylcellulose at least 2 times a day to help with my bm's but I am not seeing a great deal of change yet. I can go 5-9 days without a bm and when I do, it is crazy painful and I have lots of bad abdominal pain all the time. Anyone have any advice for me? Anyone who is going thru something like this?
Thanks in advance :)
