I'm wondering if the organic psyllium husk product Sara mentions mixes with water as well as flavored Metamucil does? I take the orange flavored Metamucil twice a day - 1 tablespoon a.m., 1 tablespoon p.m. before meals. It gives me bulk. (Don't like that it has the chemicals/synthetic flavorings in it but it helps. COSTCO's Kirkland brand used to be better, but they don't seem to have it anymore).
Taking a psyllium product doesn't mean I still don't go to the bathroom multiple times a day and go through bouts of the "Glass", crying, pain, afraid to go to the bathroom feeling. I usually experience that when I have pouchitis; I start Cipro when that happens and things get temporarily better.
Seems like I'm on Cipro all the time though. Right now I'm on a one a day maintenance dose of Cipro. Have had my j pouch for many years.
