I was diagnosed with colonic intertia and scheduled for a total colostomy on Oct. 10. I'm just wondering what everyone has tried as far as daily laxatives, enemas, diet, etc--in other words, I wonder how far off I am. I'm currently at 4 capfuls of Myralax per day, plus frequent Fleets enemas and about 1X week Mag Citrate.
-Lifelonge chronic constipation, never identified as a child
-Const became "severe" in the last decade=BM maybe 2X mth
-Told it was "just the way I was wired"
-Multiple lax/enema/meds and diets
-Colonscopy in Aug, 2011 fine
-Sitzmark test late Aug 2011= 21 markers out of 24 markers after 5 days
-Sched for total colectomy 10/10, sm bowel to rectum, probably no bag
