Sometimes I think it makes me cluster, but I have not consistently taking it every night. I am going to try to take it every night to see if it keeps everything together. Today is another day of clustering. Been to the bathroom like 5-6 times already. But with time lapse between each cluster movement which is not bad, but still I don't want to go this much. I am still nervous about the enema, because of some things I read online, but if Susie is doing it with no problem, then I really think I should try it, however she did mention there are days she still has problems. I just don't know I think people without a rectum should just keep the bag.
Life just sucks without a rectum.
I find that Nopalina is far more effective than Metamucil. I could see no visible difference with Metamucil or the CVS equivalent. Nopalina has different types of fiber and I suspect that some kinds of fiber work for some people and not for others.
BTW, I consider 5-6 times normal. Clustering for me is more like 10-30 times a day and more than two hours of time.
Mike I found that I got diarrhea from the nopalina when I tried it. My wife had a bag of it here.
I bought the bag and the capsules. The loose form in the bag didn't work for me. The capsules work a lot better for me.
