Kh1988, Yes I drink Miralax at least twice a day & often 3 times. And a month ago I was in a nasty atv accident and due to several broken bones I took pain meds for a week as well as dulcolax stool softener, & for some reason the day after the accident, I began passing liquid stool about 4-6 times a day with much less difficulty. And a month later I still take 4 dulcolax pills a day, no pain meds, and things are still moving along very well. I visited with my j pouch surgeon last week and she said 4 dulcolax pills a day if they are helping are just fine. It seems odd to be missing my entire large intestine and rectum and need a stool softener, but I honestly feel a lot better, even with 9 broken bones. My surgeon also thinks my sphincter is the cause of my problems & I also have no strictures or blockages. So maybe you should take 4 dulcolax throughout a day or 2 and see if it helps.
Sorry the oatmeal stopped working, do you still eat it??? And glad your pain is better
