Re: laxatives, bowel movements, etc.

I know - I don't know what to do. I keep calling my dr's office - and they'll "get back to me". So, what now?? Still no relief. In the past couple of days, I've put myself on a clear liquid diet (I've been given it before, in the hospital) for a few days, to see if it helps, both with bowel movements and with the pain, but so far, no luck. It's getting so bad now - and the people I work with - and for - have been so good, but how long can it last?? I was out for 2 1/2 weeks, and since then I've been on light duty (almost 2 weeks), and they can't keep me on when I've nearly useless.

Everyone I see looks at me as if I've grown a second head and asks if I'm okay - and of course, I'm not. (God, typing this is so hard!! I have to back up for almost every letter!)

They've given me nothing for pain - so I just live with it. But after work, I sometimes have a beer or two (it doesn't take much), and it helps. Probably a bad idea in the long run, but since it's only once every week or two, then I don't feel so bad about it. Besides, the few times I have been given pain meds, all they did was make me nauseous and stupid, without even dulling the pain.

I just wish someone would call me back - or something! (Please excuse me if this seems a bit disjointed - I've had 1 1/2 beers - like I said, it doesn't take much!)

Nobody worry - I don't drink often. It's actually quite rare - but this morning I really needed it. I had to work, which meant some walking and alot of driving - and those seats in the trucks are awfully uncomfortable. They make me bend where my body doesn't want to!

That is the same with me Tara, the mucous is disgusting. Don't you just love trying to explain all this. I too, have not really had a bowel movement for about a week now, I just cannot even go anymore without a laxative, and when I do go after a lax, it hurts me even more. I cannot even stand the pain after a laxative anymore, I have to take them tho to go, they have not worked in the past week tho!

They usaully do after 6-7 senkot, and the pain clinic said that is alot of senekot to take all the time. What are we supposed to do to go?
