This is kind of a follow up as I didn't want to start a new thread, but nobody answered this at the bottom of my first message. There is Good and Bad news to report. The Good news is that I have been able to continue having a BM almost every other day. (I havent failed to go a full three days so far.) I continued drinking 1 oz of wheatgrass every day except for a couple of days. So this pattern seems to be holding up so far.
The Bad news is that I am still having an incomplete evacuation with a very hard stool and with a little straining and that has caused me to have some blood on the tissue the last two times. When I first started drinking wheatgrass, it was much softer although still incomplete. (The last time I took Miralax on Nov. 10, there was blood on the tissue and incomplete as well and that is why I stopped taking it.) Along with some blood stains there is hardly any stool on the tissue which seems extremely odd. A doctor told me I have a fissure that doesn't require surgery, but with the constipation hanging around despite my diet this doesn't seem right as I also have itching and discomfort that ontiments haven't helped. Has anyone else ever experienced something like this or am I the only one?
I have my diet on the other thread which includes water, fresh fruit, dried fruit, juices, veggies, chicken and fish. I have used Colace but that hasn't helped either. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
