This is very different from IBS, so this diet may not work for you at all. From what I've read, they're both similar in that they're functional bowel problems. However, colonic inertia (where nothing's happening) seems to be the opposite of IBS (where too much is happening - spasms). Also, surgery is considered a treatment option for colonic inertia, which suggests an underlying cause may be muscle or nerve damage, while it's not an option for IBSers because no such damage or inflammation seems to correlate with its symptoms.

FYI -
Here's the general description of what IBS is:

"In people with IBS, symptoms result from what appears to be a disturbance in the interaction between the gut or intestines, the brain, and the autonomic nervous system that alters regulation of bowel motility (motor function) or sensory function [problem with the contractions in the colon - they become irregular which can cause C or D ].

Irritable bowel syndrome is characterized by a group of symptoms in which abdominal pain or discomfort is associated with a change in bowel pattern, such as loose or more frequent bowel movements, diarrhea, and/or constipation." (www.iffgd.org)

Here, I found something about colonic inertia in case someone else wanted to learn more about it - Colonic Inertia/Constipation.

I don't know what else would help you. What did your doctor recommend?
