So I just found this site and wanted to see if anyone else has my issue. I have never been "normal" on the go side. Once a week maybe every other week all my life now 54. Two years ago I had my first colonoscopy. After a full year I started having pains in my upper abd and would actually feel nausea. I finally went to the doctor. After going through upper GI, lower GI, celiac testing etc and so forth for months they decided that I was just Constipated... The precription after $K's of dollars was Miralax.
At first I was to take it 3 times a day, then figure out what I needed to do. After about a week I could not leave the house for 3 days. I had to stop taking it to go back to work. I went down to once a day which 9 months later I am still doing. If for some reason I miss a day I get the pains back and feel awful. My problem is that I was told I would be normal after 6 months and I am at 9 and still having major issues.
I missed a day becuase I had to go somewhere and was afraid I would not make the bathroom in time, so did not feel well for a few days again. Yesterday took my son for an appointment and while waiting for the place to open had total breakdown of system....had to shower again. Today I am feeling bloated and not at all comfortable. Has anyone else had this problem???
I am soooo tired of all the ups and downs with my system.
