      Ignore my previous message. Even the medication is offering no relief! The pain and the large amount of little poopies is really wreaking havoc with my exit plumbing and related areas.

      Luckily no diarrhea but this cycle I'm in could possibly do be in. The pain and discomfort is excruciating. And I'm even getting little surprises in my undies too. What a wonderful combination.

      Sincerely,

      Captain Poopie Pants

      Have had the same diagnosis. First thing in the am I have 3-4 bowel movements, then usually no more for the rest of the day. This is common with our issue. Have tried fiber supplements but it does not seem to make any difference whether I take them morning, noon or night. Am experimenting with the time of day. Also take iron to try to constipate myself a bit although I want to have a happy medium!!! Will keep experimenting and let you know. In a few days have an appointment with a new Doc as I have moved.

      I'm almost 5 years out since treatment and mornings are still an issue for me with needing to be near the bathroom. It's better than it was initially, but still a problem with 2-4 bowel movements in the a.m. I don't plan anything in the mornings where there's not a restroom close by.
