My GI and I have come to the thinking that I have "outlet constipation" Everything goes through the colon fine but because of dysfunctional tightenened rectum pelvic floor muscles, I can't defecate. The stool just gets stuck there, it stops and stays in the rectum and beyond.
I'm now doing Dulcolax suppositories but nothing is happening and I will report to GI. He's trying to get me on Motegrity but that takes a prior authorization. I've read about
physical therapy and exercise.
This is a bad situation and it started with the colonoscopy prep. I'm on the toilet a few times a day but only pass gas. Stools not hard in there, not causing pain because I'm on miralax.
Asymptomatic, biopsy shows slight disease. .Diag. Mild to mod pancolitis 9/09. Hospitalized twice. Took pred for 10 months 4/10 flare. Flared 2014 for 2 weeks. Lialda 2.4 gm, Rowasa 5 weekly.
