Low residue diet is low or no fiber. It is for the healing time your gut needs, when it is prescribed. After a diverticulitis flare, it is a must, anywhere from 3 days to a month depending on what the doctor says. You can find it by looking under any medical website. I always misplaced my diet sheet given to me by the hospital.

Hi there,

I don't very often run into IBS-c, but when I do I find Restolax very very good. Unfortunately I tend to run in the direction of the bathroom too often. But since I've been really watching my diet, I'm starting to learn trigger food and of late been successful (as much as you can) in terms of multiple runs with the accompanying "roids"....I guess in this forum nothing is sacred, but hey it's bodily functions, what's more human than that.

My doc has been very supportive for which I am grateful.

Karen

what is a low residue diet? I take generic Benefiber which works fairly well for me. I haven't tried Miralax yet, it was expensive!

Thanks for the link. Although I live in Nebraska, we watch 9 News too. I am sorry this new drug isn't affective for constipation though. Hopefully in time there will be better treatment available for us. I have 2 doctors who won't even try to help me, I wish they could feel my pain just one day, maybe they would take me seriously then.

I heard about this a few weeks ago and now they have it on one of our channel's web sites. Thought it might be of value for some people here.
