Hi Everybody - Yep...it's me again. Long time, no post, huh? Anyway, I have a question that I probably should already know the answer, but I don't. So here goes:

I take 3 Fibercon w/breakfast, 4 w/lunch and 3 w/dinner and I'm still going like a bunny (bupkas) and not very many at that. In case nobody knows what bupkas are, they're the small, dry round ones (I suspect the Jewish people already know since it's a Jewish/Yiddish word). I still get bloated and my trousers feel like they're painted on around my belly. Woe is me. Can anyone help? I sure would like to have a normal BM instead of bupkas all the time.

If it's liquid, I drink at least 64 oz. of fluids a day, if not more on some days. The only Vit. C is in my multivitamin and have added magnesium to my daily intake (1/day). Maybe I should take more than I do. Just don't know what to do next. If exercise is really the answer, I hate to exercise--not matter what it is. I always have to force myself.

Let's hear it from some of you "old timers", please and some new ones if you have good answers for me. Thanks a bundle.
