Just wondering if anyone can relate to my "bowel routine" and offer any advice.
I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis (Proctitis) quite some time ago and I think this is under control. I also think I have IBS though and my own bowel routine is being on and off the loo for 4-5 hours every 2-3 days. During the 4-5 hours "episode", the bowel movements progress from my routine "ribbon like" stools to diarrhoea and I have to have immediate access to a loo when it's my "time to go"! After things return to normal, I tend to feel very tired.
I am a 57 year old male and reasonably fit.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
