Reply to "BM during the night - Experiences"

Hi, Makaveli. I generally sleep through the night without interruption. I think in the still-early days one of the key things to do is what is sometimes called “stretching the pouch.” This is simply extending the time between BMs during the day, gently and gradually, along with kegel exercises. Explore the changes you go through from noticing that there’s something in your pouch eventually increasing to a strong feeling that it’s time to use the toilet.

Other observations:

1) I have better luck with Lomotil at bedtime than Imodium 

2) You can use a smaller dose of psyllium husk - there might be an optimal amount that you would find useful

3) A small, fatty snack at bedtime (e.g. a spoonful of peanut butter) works well for some people by slowing things down

Good luck!
