Question

IBS recovery

I' m just receovering from a 5 week bout of ibs - what is the best way to get bowel movements back to 100% normal ? (I' m trying to eat a big bowl of high - fibre bran each morning and before bed - will that work or do I need a supplement as well)

Also is it usual for ibs to linger on so long ?

Dear Ray
Be careful, too much rough fibre may irritate the bowel. Try Movicol and using a soluble fibre like Fybogel organe.
