Sounds crazy... but if your Lactose Interolent (like me) have a milkshake

Ie: back in 2008 I was hospitalized and Dr couldnt get me to have my backdoor plumbing after a week. So I told them get me a milkshake. They did... 20 minutes later I did it! They asked how it was possible, I looked at them and said "dairy is a natural form of a laxitive for a lactose interolent." they laughed at me and said they were gonna remember that from now on....

Hey Vis...

Well done buddy. It's over, but yet it has just begun. I am counting the days till the little issues subside.
I also had massive full bladder problems. Luckily the threat of a cath was good enough to start some leeks, enough to convince them something was happening. But soon that water will break and now I have absolutley no issues with eliminating whatever.

How goes it? Swallow, burp?
Funny, I can burp - and darn do I burp, after every little thing. Strange,, but I'm grateful I'm not fighting the gas battle.

The pain aint that bad is it. And it goes away quickliy.
Let me know how goes it!
