Is it a colostomy? because I have a very slow colon, extremely slow transit the transit marker test showed, and my doctor said that I was not a candidate for a colostomy, only an ileostomy! If this is your problem, slow transit, then you may need an ileostomy instead of a colostomy. Have you tried taking mega doses of miralax to get the stool to move faster? The miralax works well to keep the stool semi-solid, therefor, easier to get it to move and if I let the stool get too thick, then I will just take MORE miralax. I have taken 6 doses in one day if this gives you an idea about how much I take. LOL If I take too much miralax, it just seems to melt the poop down and this always gives me some relief. ....Miralax works best for me because all other stimulant laxatives make me very ill.
Why did you have the colostomy in the 1st place? I am looking into having the BCIR procedure....I have colonic inertia and anismus, which is a pelvic floor dysfunction.
I also take zofran for nausea. I liked it better than phenergan because phenergan always made me feel tired....zofran does not make me feel tired at all.
