so finally, after 5 days with no bm's (thank you, colonoscopy prep eyes ), I bought some Milk of Magnesia on the way home from work last night on the advice of my GI. That stuff is awesome! It's like you never took anything, just nice gentle bm's. I've rarely had the need to use laxatives, but geez, the MOM is mild. I strongly recommend it!

Ah, great tip Eva Lou! Sometimes after my Remi treatment or traveling I get such hard bm's and kind of constipated. I was always afraid to take anything because I was worried it might have the opposite effect! Thanks for the info, and next time I get the hard stools, I'll take MofM. :-)


Remicade - will have my 21th infusion on April 17.
