Has anyone tried drinking metamucil to help make more consistency of stool so can get out bowel movements easier? Sometimes my stool looks does not look like poop but the chewed up food I have eaten. This makes it come out more often. I do have cuffitis and only feel get real relief after using the canasa but only that first time going to the bathroom after inserting it.  Getting very frustrated. I just want to be able to get the stool out without feeling I am doing yoga on the toilet. Also takes me much longer in the bathroom each time I go.

I use just ground psyllium husk.  I find that a half-tablespoon once a day works best for me.  It just shows how different each of us are.  I also take 3 Beano tablets when I use psyllium to keep excess gas at bay. 

We went camping this summer and I didn't use the psyllium like I was doing at home.  I could definitely tell the difference and had a lot more butt burn.

Best of luck to you as you experiment to see what works best for you
