Janie's Story - Navigating Life With IBS

My name is Janie and I am 70+ years old. I have struggled with constipation for at least 15 years. For the last 5 - 8 years, I have searched for answers. I had times of unpleasant, surprised, uncontrollable BM's. This led to great embarrassment and nasty messes to clean up! I finally started carrying clean clothes and necessary items for cleaning up. That is what I continue doing. I take Miralax daily, and Lactulose when I need stronger help. I make plans based on what is going on with my IBS.

This is my story.
