I wondered if anyone had any quick fixes for a particularly bad blockage?!i am going crazy with pain and fullness. I am normally always on the constipated side, but this time it’s really quite bad. I am waiting for an appointment with a specialist following a laparoscopy for endometriosis showing that I had a significantly enlarged and loopy colon.
I have not been properly in over a week, the last time was Tuesday and it was more “overflow” than proper poop.
I take 6-8 laxido a day and have for over three years now. I also take magnesium citrate at bedtime, and have been having two dulcolax the last four nights just to try and force things out but I don’t even have the urge to try. I am hugely bloated and have bad pain in my back and across my lower abdomen. I have been drinking gallons of water and usually drink at least 3l a day anyway and my diet is really good, so I don’t know why it has gotten so bad this time. Oh; I’ve also tried an enema and suppositories which have produced the tiniest amount of poo and a lot of mucus (sorry!). My colon is slow to work anyway; for my last colOnoscopy I started the prep a full 24 hours early and it didn’t kick in until 3 hours before I was due in! I normally can make light of it but I am honestly getting to a stage where I wonder if I can live my life like this forever - I am young and my life revolves around my bowel. I had my endometriosis removed and have had a short time of lessened bowel issues (a cyst was pressing on it which made t all worse) but now it just seems to be as bad again.
