I have Endometriosis of the pelvis and bowel and even though codeine seems to work relatively well for me regarding pain management ( don’t get me wrong not all of the time but enough for now ) it does cause me terrible constipation, which is actually the worst when already suffering with my bowels. I do use lactulose but my body struggles to digest sugars so it’s all a bit of a mess. After a recent bout of horrendous constipation and forcing lactulose ( then dealing with terrible, TERRIBLE gas and bloating ) I feel the need to seek out an alternative pain killer.
I haven’t been to the GP yet regarding this, but have found this forum helpful in the past at recommendations which I then usually offer up to my GP.
Thank you in advance 🙏🏾
