SO supposedly, I've had this before and I was crippled over in pain.
What I'm wondering is yesterday I felt some discomfort, not really pain, and so I drank 2 things of miralax (colon surgeon said I could drink miralax if I felt like my stool was too hard - because I totally dislike the taste, I usually double the dose up, which he said was fine - no more than 2 doses/day tho). So, that said, It was all nice and soft yesterday and changed my bag twice, nothing major, pretty normal. This morning, I have two small nuggets of stool in my bag (I can feel them). Could I have had a partial blockage and the miralax is starting to unblock it?
I fear a blockage, so I'm doing all I can to eat plenty of fiber and drink 6-8 glasses of water. Any other suggestions? I'm also on a new diabetic diet (I'm NOT diabetic, just have diabetic tendencies and with the steriod damage and all..it's for the best), It's 1500 calories and I get 16-20 grams of fiber, plenty of good fats...etc.. plus fruits and veggies...
Is the change in diet causing that, or could it just be I had a partial blockage and it's starting to move? Do ALL blockages hurt, even the little ones?
Btw, LOVING the new Eakin Seal!!!!!!! Haven't had a leak since!
