I've been home from the hosptial for two days. Had very bad diarreah at hospital and now that I'm home, am having an equally difficult time with constipation. Any suggestions? I am taking Questran and Megestrose (sp?) and cannot tell if they are adding to my problem. I would like to find something to treat the constipation without needing to call my doctor, who probably thinks I'm neurtoic, anyway. Since I didn't leave the hosptial with this problem, I assume my doctor did not think it would become one. Has anyone used Mirilax?
Had first surgery back in May as I had a tumor in my colon and all had to be removed. I am very thankful that I was able to have the reversal surgery, since the iliostomy and I never became fast friends or very comfortable with one another. Had some complications due to gastric bypass surgery in 2003, and my body's inability to absorb nutrients efficiently.
This is my first introduction to being part of a forum and I welcome your comments, and hope I will know how to respond, etc.
