Wow, I am overwhelmed at the responses to my question. THanks so much everyone who has taken the time to respond to me.
Sharon, My family doctor wanted me to have a colonoscopy too and I didn't want to go through that, in Canada, the prep time is 4 days, I just couldn't do that. I notice when I am the most constipated is when I feel the worst. My stomach bothers me more at that time then any other time. I will look for the Milled Flax seed and hopefully it will work. I am currently using Corn Syrup in yougurt and that helps, as long as I take the stool softeners twice a day. Not going regular but enough to help.
Barbara I am sorry that you are suffering so much. I hate being sick, but I am always thankful that I don't have cancer, that scares me the most and I am truly truly sorry that you are having to deal with that as well. How do you keep yourself from losing your mind? ((((Barbara Lee)))))
PHNDOC, I am on two different inhalers, one two puffs twice daily, the other two puffs four times daily. It helps. I hate that not being able to breathe feeling. Its scarey.
Stacey with the meds that I am on I am sure it is causing a big problem with my stomach and bowels. I know when I can go, I feel much better. A friend of mine is on a natural laxative that is available in Canada but is double the price of what she pays for it in the States. I will look for the milled flax seed and see if that works for me.
Thanks again everyone for your reply. It is nice to know that we are not alone.I hope you all have a great day with low pain.
