Good Morning everyone. I mostly need to vent today...I am experiencing pain in a new area today...lower left pelvic area, just slightly above and to the right of the pelvic bone. It's a deep throbbing pain and feels the same as when I had cysts on my ovaries.

I took my meds an hour ago, and it hasn't made it go away yet. I'm going to get some heat on there as well, but man oh man...I do NOT need another painful area!!

I know I'm constipated, so I'm hoping that's all it is...even with laxatives, I haven't had any success for a few days now.

I am getting SO sick and tired and fed up with this. I know you all understand, when I say "enough is enough...leave me and my body along".

I hope all of you are doing better than me!


hugs,
Pam

Hi Pam,

I do know what you mean about being constipated from the medications and it can cause awful pain. A couple of ideas to help you find some relief. For more immediate relief use glycerin suppositories. They are cheap, easy and fast. Buy generic to save money. Plus, unlike something you swallow they get to the source of the problem, so to speak.

Next, begin taking a stool softener if you don't already. I use both generic colace and the kind you mix in with a beverage...OK, will think of the name soon. Miralax! But Costco and likely others have come out with generic that is the same and a whole lot cheaper. I'm very sensitive to tastes and odors of anything strange in my food but this stuff is totally tasteless. Any of us using opioid pain reliever should be using something like these to avoid pain and possibly blockages or worse.

Take care of that tummy! Gentle hugs...

Mirilax, like Chutz suggested always works like a charm for me. After you get going you can lower the amount to meet your needs. Hope you can get this under control soon because you don't want to get impacted.

Thanks everyone. So far, I've tired Senna (all versions), Metamucil, Lax-a-day and increasing fibre, etc. and all to no avail. I'll have to ask my doctor for other recommendations. I wonder if that's what the new pain is, on the left hand side...because I'm constipated.

I really appreciate the suggestions and support. I just get so tired when a new pain pops up...it always seems to reinforce to me that nothing has changed for the better.

On a good note though, I have been sleeping better, and have had a LOT less hot flashes and severe sweating since starting the Clonidine, so that's a start!

Wishing everyone a really good day today.

Hugs,
Pam

I was like you and ended up in my doctors office. There is a prescription (liquid) that will move you that your doc can give: Generlac Solutionyeah

MsBunky,

Sorry to hear about the new pain. If is it sharp or severe and not constipation, maybe it is time to call the doctor for a ASAP appointment, You never know what is going on, but if it is truly uncomfortable also error on the safe side. I know my doctor yells at me if I don't call when something is bothering me. He always says some things are easier fixed at their start. If you wait too long, additional problems can arise and it might not be as easy to treat.

Women alwats have a bad habit of not wanting to bother anyone. If you hurt and it is new, bother your doctor. It is right thing to do - even if you don't too!

Please keep us posted, because we care.
