Dear Margie:

I have similar symptoms as you -- chronic constipation, ankles swelling, difficulty in stooping over). I have diverticulosis, with a history of ruptured colon, peritonitis and septic shock (my treating physician had diagnosed my abdominal pain as IBS and depression - a typical male physician dx).

I find that by taking 2 capsules of flax seed oil daily I can prevent severe constipation. When I need additional help I rely on Miralax.

Hope this helps--
