Hi mads,
Sorry you are having such a difficult time. Did you tell your doctor you haven't had a BM in weeks??? S/He should be helping you.
The only idea I have would be for you to run out and get a prep kit. Something like Phosphosoda... You can find it at most drug stores and pretty much all pharmacies. Ask the pharmacist about your options. You should get relief within hours of taking it.
Good luck! I hope you feel better soon.

You definitely need to see a doctor if you are vomiting or feel as if you are going to or even need to. Vomiting with severe constipation can be a symptom of a blockage in the intestines. When it can't go down, it will come back up. A lot of people brush off constipation, but it can be quite serious and you should seek help in order to get cleaned out and to make sure you don't have a blockage of some sort.

You can't wait till then. You are probably losing hair and ruining teeth because you are getting no nutrients. That is ridiculous that you have to wait. I think you need to be more aggressive with your Dr. as you can't go on like this. You need to get something to get rid of the buildup. I don't know about your other health problems but how can they let you go on like this. YOu are going to end up in ER seriously ill and they ought to know that. Throwing up like that can really ruin your esphagous like a bulimic. There is something they can do in the interim, I am sure or at least allow you to take a good laxative to clean you out. Are you making yourself vomit to feel better or do you not have control of it?

Mads: You need to either get to your doctor now or get yourself to the ER. You're literally turning toxic from the waste in your intestine and like mentioned above you could have a blockage. I know, I ended up in the ER for exactly the same reason. When the ER doc told me I was completely full and that there wasn't even room for gas in there, that was a serious problem. I had my colonoscopy coming up that week (on a Friday), so that they put me on clear liquids and I got to start my prep 4 days early (2 bottles of mag citrate, 2 heaping tablespoons of MOM every 4 hours until the day before the c-scope, then 2 bottles of phosphoro soda in a four hour period of time and 4 tabs of duculax) It finally started moving Thursday night. I was worried I wouldn't be clean for the scope - that's how bad I was.

Vomiting or even wanting to can also be dangerous as you might end up vomiting feces (I'm not kidding), since there is no place for anything to go. Please, this is serious, you must get some sort of medical attention now.

Has anyone tested you for motility. I have a very slow system and take Motilium before I eat. It seems to go in spells for me. You can also take after. It is not sold in US but I believe Reglan which is is for the same thing. You have got to stop someway and you doctor just telling you to stop without a solution isn't right. Can't you find another doctor. On top of everything else you are going to really do damage to your esophagous. There has to be an answer but I think you are beyond the probiotic stage and need more medical intervention. Does you Dr. see you when you are bloated like that. Since you are scheduled for that study, maybe you could ask your Dr. for the Reglan now as it speeds up digestion. This is a terrible thing to go thru. What harm could it do to try it now.

mads, Please find another doctor who can help you. This is a very dangerous thing you are doing to yourself but I'm sure you know that already. Another reason that your guts probably aren't working is because you haven't given them a chance. You have not allowed yourself to digest so your body has to essentially teach itself again. Please, please, please find some help and fast... PLEASE!!!

I think you should maybe seek advice from another doctor just for a second opinion. Motilium (domperidone)is a good drug for nausea and bloating. It helps move things through quicker so food doesnt stay in your stomach for too long and make you feel sick. If you are still constipated badly, go to the pharmicist or hospital for a laxative or even an enema as you must be so bunged up and that can make you feel rotten. I do think you should consider a second opinion though. Good luck with everything and hope you start to feel better soon. Keep in touch and let us know how you get on
