I went for my yearly check up at the GI and he ordered a blood test along with a quick x-ray to see how things were going. My goal for this appointment was to get a new IBS management medicine that I could take after using the bathroom. This would prevent having to run to the bathroom 1-2 hours later which is annoying when teaching 20 students.
The x-ray said that I was a little constipated along the gi tract and the new medicine would cause a big problem for me down the road.
Here is the problem: I cleanse out completely on Sunday. There is literally nothing left in the colon. By Wednesday for the x-ray, I was already a bit constipated????
It is obvious to me that I am not breaking down, digesting and using the food I eat! It literally builds up to so much waste. This was a clear colon on Sunday and constipated by Wednesday with normal movements mixed in!
I am obviously lacking something that breaks the food down so that there is not so much waste left behind.
I know digestive enzymes would do the trick, but which type can you actually trust?? What are your experiences or thoughts?
