Hi all - I am 7.5 months post reversal. I had taken Metamucil for decades with UC. I started it up again a few months ago, and have found it has seemed to help with butt burn (by diluting what goes through?) And the stool seems to move through well.
But here's my question: Because the fiber bulks up the stool, do I have more BMS per day while taking it? The late afternoon/evening number of bathroom trips are sometimes a real issue with my job. Would quitting the Metamucil reduce the quantity of stool?
I thought I'd ask the experts here before trying something that might be unfortunate. (I am nervous that if my stool is liquidy I'll have overnight seepage. As of yet I have not had that.)
I currently take 2 small doses of Metamucil: one at breakfast and one right after lunch.
