@ltk Just to add a further comment, @ltk, I suffered similar symptoms as you until I was referred to a G.I. in November. Because I was "a risk" for colonoscopy, the doctor worked with me from November to the present, trying different protocols using various titres of Metamucil and Lax-a-Day. I kept a daily Bristol Stool Chart (Gastrointestinal Assessment Tool) which was faxed to him monthly, after which he would phone me to discuss the next plan. Because of Covid restrictions I only had three office visits, two of which involved rectal exams. We are still on a monthly monitoring phone appointment, and my issues are slowly but surely improving! I hope you'll ask for further help and proper monitoring. You deserve it!
