Hi everyone. I have total colectomy with ileorectal anastomosis. Been struggling to keep my stool soft. I am about 3 months post surgery. Diet changes don't seem to be helping at all as far as keeping stool soft.
No matter what I eat, how active I am, how much water I drink and how on top of my electrolytes I am I find my output too solid. I take iron supplements and I know they can cause constipation but they are non-negotiable because I am anemic (was pre-colectomy as well).
Tried miralax, but it’s making me pretty bloated and gassy, and creating a lot of gut gurgles. Anyone have any other suggestions? Colace, smaller dose of miralax?
Thank you in advance :)
