Constipation = my nemesis
Ive always had issues with constipation with my UC. Ive been in remission for over 5 years and just now had a flare a couple weeks ago. Started 40 mg of prednisone, down to 30 and now everything has just stopped again. And while Im good with no more 15 trips to the bathroom as day...now there has been no movement for 6 days. I've been taking Miralax for the last 4 days (2 times yesterday)...and now Im feeling the need to resort to stimulant laxative just to get some relief.
In my remission, I would try to do Miralax a few times a week, just to stay somewhat regular.
Anyone else with these issues and advise for a quick cure? Its getting uncomfortable to say the least.
Thanks all...(drinking prune juice as I type...)
