I didn't realize how constipated I was. I had a couple of small bowel movements. Well, let me tell you after 3 hrs in the bathroom and 2 fleet enemas I was left feeling weak and sore. I am so afraid that will happen again! No one wants to go through that! I am drinking extra water. I called the dr. Office will be taking ducolax and Miralax. Anyone using these drugs and do they work well?
I suffered SO badly with it I gave myself Diverticulitis - you do NOT want that - trust me.
I now take magnesium citrate (same as Milk of Mag), 3x a day, Colace, 3x day, and I add Miralax to one of my 32 oz of decaf iced tea every day - and sometimes I STILL get stopped up. When I do, out comes the MOM, it works it's magic and I'm back to normal. But I can't miss ONE dose or I'm stopped up.
My goal is to never ever have another case of Diver.. if I do, the surgeon says, Yup, it's a bowel resection for you! And I do NOT want that.
So whatever works for you, stay on top of it.
