Okay so I went to ER on election night because I was in so much pain...well doc released me and said I was backed up bad, and gave me Citrate of Magnesium. said xray showed me backed up really really bad so.....
I drank entire bottle at 2am after being released. Its now been 36hrs and no bowel movement. After the Citrate of Magnesium didn't work yesterday, like an idiot I took 3 laxative pills to see if that would help. The pain subsided so I thought nothing else until I started running a temp (may be unrelated) and getting so nauseated!!
This morning I ate some oatmeal and got the worst pain ever in my upper gastric area and puked my guts up. So I took a Zofran and some Lortab.
So now Ive had double doses of laxatives---no bowel movement---no appetite whatsoever---crazy terrible nausea---and fever. Do I have a flubug? what is wrong with me? I can't believe I can't go to the bathroom yet. My stomach was makng the loudest noises but now has stopped. I would try to eat again but I have no appetite whatsoever.
Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength
