If you haven't been diagnosed with IBS yet, they might do blood/stool tests along with either a barium swallow or CT and a colonoscopy to make sure it's not anything else.

I have had all the colonscopy's baruim sawallow, upper GI, cant ever go to the bathroom by myself, have to induce it with enemas to get air out first then usually nothing but soft stuff. Never plugged just air will not let anything move, coffee does not help any for me, like it did in the good old day. Gosh I guess it is too much to ask to have a bm every day or even every other day would be great . But have not had that since well, 2 years now... so got to figure out what is goin on.

Diagnosed with IBS
Had a Colon resection with all but 2 in left
Thorasic spinal surgery for a tumor wrapped around my spinal cord
2 Lower Lumbar surgeries

carpol tunnel surgery
brest reduction
R knee replacement

too many sugeries,,,dont have many parts left to be a organ donor, might have to change my card...lol

You've had a lot of surgeries, is it possible some nerves were damaged? If the right nerves were damaged, your body wouldn't be able to go on its own.

That will be on my list of things to ask the specialists...thanks for the info, and a good idea. I am drinking Citrus Of Magnesium this morning as I have not had any bm's in over a week.

Just finished the last swallow of this stuff, I still hate it....YUCK. Thanks again.
