  1. Hi, I just joined this support group. Thanks to Jeffrey for starting it! I'd love to start a local support group here in SoCal. Happy Thanksgiving:-) Dede
  2. Hi I'm new to the forum , really need to hear from others who suffer from Chronic Constipation issues. I m 64, for the past 4 months I have been unable to move bowels normally. What I'm going through is ,I feel the urge to go and cannot get the bowels out. I am seeing a Gastrointestinal Dr. Already ruled out Fecal impaction and any blockage issues by doing a Cat Scan. He prescribed Linzess. which I take daily. This has been the only god-sending medication that has worked . The only problem is , I go ...sometimes hard but....mostly diarrhea. Its actually getting better. Lately, I am going more complete and less diarrhea. But I am living with a constant abdominal cramping and feeling of incomplete bowel function. The Dr, also prescribed the usual stuff ..... lots of water intake, Metamucel ( Which doesn't work for me ! ) and Aerobic exercising. The latest prescription is he wants me to get a Sitzmarker Test. My question is , where does it end, and has anyone taken this test and others and have seen results... like a normal bowel movement without the daily use of medication ? I am like becoming depressed over this, and not working regular,which unfortunately at my age I need to do. Lost in Yonkers. danteq64
