Water Retention

I've been struggling with IBS-C for several years now. Heather's diet didn't do anything for me, although I am more or less stable on the acacia fiber and miralax. Less stable because I travel and I find it very difficult to stay stable while traveling.

Being stable has kept down gas bloating a lot, but I still retain a lot of water. Most of it sits around my mid section-- my stomach and thighs are swollen. I've tried stepping down my fiber intake this week from 2 tbs to 1.5 tbs which I mix in 32oz of water. Beyond that 32 oz, I drink about 10oz of tea, 10oz of water with my Miralax and maybe another glass of water with dinner or a cup of coffee. I tried OTC diuretics but that did nothing.

Anyone have any advice for shedding the water? Maybe I need to wait out the humid DC summer?
