metamucil and stool softeners will soften your stools and cause it to be less formed and that can make it take more wipes to get clean.
you might need to stop your stool softeners and decrease your fiber to firm up your stools if you don't want to wipe so much
another option is to use a bidet to clean your bottom after bowel movements.
adding a probiotic to your diet could help
also doing kegel exercises to help strengthen your anal sphincter muscle could help
have you tried stopping use the colace stool softener and metamucil to see if that helps?
