Amanda...I hope u get some relief soon.. would prune juice help do you think??
Janie...I don't know if this will help u but some days I take metamucil and drink prune juice to get things "right". The metamucill bulks things up, and the prune juice keeps it from bulking too much. I adjust it according to whichever way I am (mostly constipated). More metamucill, less water if I am runnning loose, or less metamucill and more water, if I am constipated...if I am really plugged, then I use the reinforcement of prune juice. This keeps things moving well for me.

Ok, so I was WRONG!! I just got back from the doctor and I don't have hemerrhoids, I have a fissure. I don't know if that's better or worse, all I know is that it hurts!! She prescribed some cream for me that the pharmacist has to make and I have to pick it up tomorrow. I sure hope it helps because I'm dying here....Also, they set me up for an appointment next Tuesday for some other tests. Not a CT scan but some other test to put contrast in me and take an x ray to see how big the anastamosis is or if there is any constriction. Then they want me to try to push out the contrast and then they'll take another x ray and see how much I got out. I can't remember the names of these tests, but I know I've heard you girls talk about them before, they're nothing new, just new for me. I sure hope nothing is wrong...I still have symptoms of a partial blockage and that's why she's checking all this. We'll see what happens...
I haven't been feeling well at all so I have to admit I haven't been keeping up with the posts. I'm SO SORRY! I hope everyone is doing well though. I miss you all so much!!
