I'd appreciate any advice on bulking agents please. I've had my J Pouch since 2001 and I've struggled all that time with finding food / medication that will thicken up my stools. I've tried Imodium but it gives me bad headaches and I've tried Psyllium Husk but that didn't seem to have any effect at all.
Only two things ever seemed to work for me - 1) Codeine-based pain-killers but I only took them for a short time after my surgery and 2) Pepto Bismol, but it's quite expensive (in the UK at least) and seemed to become less effective after a week or so.
Any suggestions would be very much appreciated, and if you know of a good place to go to for reasonably priced Pepto in the UK please let me know!
