    Hi Lynn...I am a 45 yr old female who has suffered from chronic consitpation for most of my life.  I had actually never heard of CIC until tonight when I came across this surfing the internet...but I believe that this is what I have.  I am now currently just over 3 weeks with only having had 2 small movements.  This also after having taken the typical concoctions that are given to someone just prior to a colonoscopy.  I spoke with my Dr. as well as the pharmacist and had high hopes that this would help...but barely helped at all.  Do you know what they do at the hospital if the MOVIPrep and GoLytely do not work??  I'm pretty nervous and scared at this point to just go to the hospital but I know I may have to.  Do you have any advice??  Also, how has Linzess been working for you??
