Topic: RE: Miralax... how do you take it?

I took Miralax in a glass of room temperature water, then I had a cup of coffee with Low-fat Lactaid Milk and a little bit of sugar. Both of them didn't hit me until an hour later. I must have gone to the bathroom at least a dozen times this morning. Then, after I finally stopped, both were making me urinate multiple times. I almost peed myself while looking for socks before showering. I had to take IBGard because my gut wouldn't stop rumbling! You will have some discomfort and pain if you have IBS like I do. I wasn't dehydrated at all from going multiple times. Fair warning: you will have to go every 5-10 minutes. I was in the bathroom at least a couple hours this morning.

Topic: RE: Kirkland Protein Bars on Costco - Don?t buy them

These bars contain almost all soluble fiber so the intent is to create bulk and make you feel full. Too much soluble fiber without insoluble fiber in your diet can lead to constipation.

Topic: RE: Heavy Period on pre-op?????

Yes mine is exactly the same. I got mine again on the 3rd day of the two week pre-opt diet and it's super heavy. I have surgery Tuesday so I'm hoping it stops.
