Hi, having seen 3 different Gastroenterology Consultants over the last 14months....they keep leaving the present one has now decided on me taking a 'new' tablet.Linaclotide /Constella capsules. 'It may work, it may not'? So with Christmas in the way I waited til after. I'm already taking Movicol X 1 sachet. So for the 1st 48hrs it was like having the Prep prior to having any Scope exams. Pain & Diarrhoea. Saw him again last Friday. You have IBS C, yes ok had that now for over 2 years 'therefore it's the blocked stools with the Diarrhoea passing around them'. So continue the Linaclotide & increase sachets of Movicol to 1 twice a day. Well I'd like a life. I want to Control it & not the IBS Control me. I'm on & off the loo, pain, bloating too. I take Panadol, reduced Co-Codamol to 1 with a Panadol. Spasmonal, Colofac. Apart from Cons saying I don't think we can cure this- but try & make it manageable! So this 'flare up' has been present for 2wks now, longest for a while, any ideas to help me, please. My 'best friend' is my hot water bottle. I asked him about Colonic Irrigation, a blank look was given with no real answer. See in 3 months!!! Has anyone tried Colonic Irrigation & was it any good. I'm a 63yr old female.....so relatively 'young ish' to live with this 🤔. Thanks, Jackie.
