Pain and defecation

Dear Len,

I am new to this support group and suffering greatly each morning. I defecate many times with notable pain and am experiencing a major flare-up. I would like to know what you can eat the night before golfing to control the issue? Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi Derek,

Welcome to the community.

The first treatment type is diet and namely the low FODMAP diet. It is not a permanent diet, but rather you work with a Dietitian to understand how much foods containing high FODMAPs can you tolerate.

There are medications that will help with pain and slowing down bowel movements. Perhaps understand if you are consuming foods high in FODMAPs might be enough to help.
