Well here goes.....I go in to the hospital for about 2 weeks about once a year for meds and a tuneup as my doc calls it.When I get out everything is dandy take meds ect ect......and i gain about 12 pounds each time but after about 3-4weeks after being out of the hospital it slowly starts to fall off and everything goes down hill fast too. Example that my doctor doesnt be live the on day I weighed myself befor i went to sleep woke up and weighed myself and had lost 5 pounds(mind you I am wearing the same clothes)!! Then druing the day I will gain back about half of what i have lost the previouse night. This has happened after the 2 times i have ever been in the hospital and after my doctor has given me antibiotics. So I am did a little evalutation of the situation and if I am not mistaken it is becuase I aways get constipated ever with taking my enzymes (MT20's) the other brands and generic are tons worse for me. I have tried meds to clear out they work but it seems like I get instantly consipated again I have even tried dolcolax (strong stuff) but I havent take it for the full week like it says on the box yet I took it for 2 days in a row and thought that was all I might need. Another problems i have is when i am constipated and eat my meals whatever it be i almost aways start coughing after and then throwup my food thus im not getting any nutrition at all like yesterday all i had to eat was 6 or 7 of the freeze pops you can buy yourself and maybe 2 gartorades.Im going to be going down to my doctors soon so im scared cos i think he is going to put my in the hospital I HATE THE HOSPITAL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

enough said

When I'm Constipated I take ACC 200 works like a charm. The worst thing about being constipated with CF, is that when you eat it hurts even more to the point you can walk withough being in constant pain
