I am having a lot of problems in passing stool, doesn't matter if I am constipated or not. I take bran, grapes, tomato juice, flaxsed tea and metamucil each day. I have severe diverticulosis and a very prolapsed bladder. They tell me I am not a candidate for a sigmoidoscope. My Dr. told me if I did have colon cancer and nothing was done, I might live 10 years but at my age I probably wouldn't live that long anyway.Thanks a lot!!! Could a Cscan show if there was some type of blockage that is causing this problem? To say the least I am very frustrated. To-day he prescribed lactulose to use along with all the others including the metamucil. He prefers to use as many natural products as possible instead of a laxative.
Any suggestions would be greatly apreciated.
