Been wanting to go to a gastro for years now, but haven't had insurance. Now that I finally have insurance, another health problem arises. (headaches) I have a thread on that, currently. As soon as I figure out my headache problem, which I think i might just be getting to that point, I'm going to a gastro. I've had problems going for probably 6 years. I'm a 31 year old male, 140 pounds, 6-1.
My problem is that my body will hold tons of stool at a time,'only letting out small pebbles every now and then. Sometimes, I get lucky and produce big pebbles. Rarely nice soft ones, like we're supposed to. What eventually happens, is that after maybe 2 months of build up, it all comes out in one sitting. Some well shaped stools and some diareah too. You want to talk about pain? THAT is painful. Not the actual stool coming out (literally) but the fact that there's so much wanting to come out at once. It's so bad it makes me want to throw up at the same time.
As for the mirilax, it's absolutely wonderful. Thought the first time I took it, I filled the powder all the way to the top. Bad idea. Hit me like a ton of bricks and it ALL came out at once! PAIN!! Anyway, now I just drink one full glass of water with
a decent amount of powder and it helps. I need to use it more often though. But yeah, I highly recommend it! No nasty taste and works wonderful.
