Perhaps someone has experience with this and can advise. Long term IBS c, significantly improved with dietary changes. However during 5 weeks traveling abroad, unable to follow my dietary needs, I became severely constipated and resorted to laxatives. Continue to have significant problems, and in addition, a part of my colon comes out anytime I attempt to move my bowels. After procedure for hemorroids where none were found, surgeon referred me to a colon rectal specialist. However the earliest appointment is 5 weeks away! I started Heathers fiber yesterday and will continue (wish I knew about it before travel). I've already been eating a balanced fiber diet, drink water, exercise, etc but it was suggested I take Miralax. Im worried about doing this for the next 5 weeks especially since my system doesn't handle them particularly well. I'm in a particularly bad spot and wonder if others have taken tummy fiber and laxatives like Miralax together.
