omg ive got constipation at the moment and its killing me.
i jsut got off the can after 40 minutes of the most painful bm's (since the last one - hehe)
i am finally coming out of the flare as there are bm's now rather than just blood and liquid.
this time there was no blood. the pain in my rectum and while going is excrutiating.
i feel like im gonna push the baby out.
it takes about
an hour to recover from going to the toilet.
im also on endone (oxycodone) for the pain which causes constipation as well.
i just called my mum today in california and she is buying me those stool softeners from kaisers (without any laxative).
ive used those before during bad flares and they help so much.
fiber gives me painful cramping and gas so i stopped that.
i hope the pills get here quick! i cant get kaiser stuff in australia so have to wait for snail mail!
are there any other suggestions besides whats already been given.
i go on walks everyday with the dog and hubby.
i drink lots of water.
