Having gastrointestinal problem after taking a fiber supplement

at the end of 2008 I took a fiber supplement called colon pure and in about 3 months Jan-09 I lost 10 pounds, all on my stomach area, I ended up with a flat stomach. After this incident I suffered a lot of gas, nausea , stomach pain, cramping and very thin stool. Now 2 years later my stomach is protruding like I m pregnant and almost always in pain with the cramping and gas.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
The protruding out of your stomach is not likely to be due to the effect of a fibre taken by you two years ago.It might be due to some other digestive problems you might be having due to other undiagnosed reasons. You need to get a complete check up for yourself.
