Hi...just curious if you're eating as much as you normally would?
Since it takes some foods up to 3 days to be digested/processed and then purged, I would think that having a clean-out from stem to stern will take the 4 days for you to have a bm.
Are you still using the predfoam?
Do you ahve any antispasmodics?
eating and drinking fluids should help....
If it goes beyond the 4th day..definitely call the doc.
Can you drink coffee? That will stimulate the sigmoid and possibly a bm.
How much oral 5ASA med are you on?
Hope this soon passes.

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
