I have same disease as you. I stopped my expensive prescription Med and use a mixture I was given by a Physical Therapist. 3/4 cup prune juice, 1 cup oat bran and 1 cup applesauce. Two tbsp before bed and a small amount of milk of magnesia saline. I now, after 3 years, have regular bowel movements.
I do stay on a diet and don’t eat for 3 hours before bed.

Brenda is this related to my situation or Eileen. This is hard to belief, trust me it has been for me but since acdf 3 fusion surgery done June 2020 I NEVER pass anything formed. So, it’s diarrhea to move something or stop all meds. I have stopped many many times since 2020 and get to 15 days without going to the bathroom. I ended up in the hospital. Now, I won’t go more than 5 or 6. I bought an enema system used for coffee enemas but I don’t use the coffee. I put two to three cups distilled water in and hold as long as possible to hopefully soften anything there. My problem is my stool gets stuck in traverse colon so way at the beginning of the colon where it empties from small intestine. I have severe motility issues. It’s just very odd because it happened after very long surgery. It was 6 hours and it was done through the front of my neck. Import never that controls bowels is right there. I think anesthesia and possibly the nerve is the issue but no one can do anything except say remove entire colon. I’m not. Joanne
