How do you get your docs to listen to you about
I have had 5 BM's in the month of January. I'm talking about
a couple of hard marbles each time. I have been going through this for a few years now. Finally I got to the point I don't even bring it up anymore. I have taken everything that is out there. I take alot of meds besides I have IBS with constipation. The only thing I drink is water, nothing else and plenty of it. To me it also feels like nothing is functioning. I asked my doc about
a year ago to put me on Zelnorm and he wouldn't, he just tells me that I'm constipated and to eat more fiber and drink more water. (Duh) And I have seen him and other docs reguarding this problem many times. I Finally used an enema (which I do use and doesn't usually work), and had alot come out Wed., but I am still bloated. I never have an urge to go. And then having alot of heart issues going on it's not easy to push. Tomorrow I'm going to urgent care and demand that they give me something. I shouldn't have to suffer as I have been. My mother was 45 and passed away due to perforation to the colon. The whole large intestine was gangrene and the small intestine 75% the same. I am not going out that way.
