I spend so much time going to the bathroom with d I never would think I would end up with motility issues. My dr had me do two days of preps with Miralax to clear out my FULL colon. What in the world. I've spent today in the bathroom and have an appt. tomorrow for a SBFT. The doctor is wanting to rule out a fistula from small bowel to colon as part of the reason for constant d. I've also developed motility issues with my stomach (gastropeurisis) and dr has me taking reglan with every meal. I was throwing up yesterdays food the next morning. This is all new to my disease and really quite baffling! How can someone go to the bathroom so much and still be at risk for fecal impaction? I guess I'll wait for results from SBFT, just thought I'd check with ya'll and see if anyone has any thoughts.
