    Thank you all but I really didn't post this humiliating topic for me. I posted it because it comes up so often that I want people to know that there is such a simple answer but no one ever tells is about it! I want them to know that you don't have to suffer for years and your life doesn't have to revolve around where the restroom is located.

    tomorrow my daughter and I are taking a trip to tour one of the colleges where she has been accepted. It is about 3 hours away. In discussing the plans she looked at me and smiled before saying " hey mom! We can actually go through a drive thru for breakfast". I want others to know that they too can go through a drive thru for breakfast too!

    Congrats Mari, especially on finding a doc who actually "thought" a bit. Keep that GI guy.

    Mari my husband takes welchol and I gave it a try and you are so right. Thanks so much for posting it. It feels wonderful to eat and not have to run to the bathroom.

    Isn't it amazing? Make sure to talk to your doctor because I know the dose varies depending on how severe it is. I am on the max dose but if you take too much it can constipated you. It has been a wonder drug for me and I had to share!

    now if I could just get his Lupus flare/seizures to stop...
