I did a search of posts for having constipation with a J-Pouch. But I am unsure what to do.
I have gone from having to take meds and Psyllium husk to slow my output frequency/watery output to having an issue with constipation/unable to fully evacuate my pouch with no meds/Psyllium husk.
Regardless of what I eat in the morning, I end up having multiple trips to the bathroom, unproductive BM's, inability to fully evacuate my pouch, and leakage during the day. I am on my feet all day at work and bending/twisting can cause leakage as well. The amount and type of food I eat makes no difference on my ability to fully evacuate when having a BM.
I get days where I get home from work and my output turns to water and I have done nothing to cause it or eaten anything in hours.
I drink upwards of a gallon of water daily. So dehydration should not be an issue. Will taking Miralax help? Even hot sauce didn't help (when I ate it on eggs today).
