Since my diagnosis of lupus 12 years ago, it has become blatantly apparent that my bowel is affected by the disease. I have spoken to my doctor, rheumy and several other medics and all they want to know is that if I take laxatives, am I able to go to the loo. The answer is yes but I am finding that I have to take more and more laxatives for there to be any affect. Does anyone have any hints as to how I can make life a little better, does aloe Vera work? Are there any questions that I should be asking?
Apologies for the subject matter
