Did you ask them about doing the colonoscopy type prep with ducolax and miralax to clean you out?
Have you tried taking an over the counter Probiotic? It really helps with Diarrhea and constipation by putting good bacteria in the intestines.
I did mention the colon prep...but the Dr. wanted me to do stool samples first..which came out good. I take miralax daily. I have never seen Probiotic...would it be say at ...Walmart?
They have probiotics at cvs walgreens, riteaid. I take culturelle and align. One of each a day.
all that stuff you take keeps you regular, no constipation, no diarrhea? Do you suffer from constipation or diarrhea? I am just curious, this my first time on this board. i have to take a couple anti-depressants and painkiller, thats why its so hard for me to get just right. It also is not good to take these meds since I have had bowel obstructions, but Dr. says as long as I keep things moving, I should be fine. If i stop taking my meds, I'ts probably be better in my constipation, but then miserable (depressed) Damn if I do, Damn if I don't!! Double edge sword
I have D and me and my GI doc have been trying to figure it out. I have found I have a bad gallbladder and some yeast overgrowth and some weird bacteria in my intestine. He said the gallbladder is not causing the diarrhea so I started the align he recommended and it helped some. I then started the culturelle and it has helped even more. My stool is more formed. I still go a lot but its not as bad as before and loose and watery. I would try these out. Many people use them for constipation and diarrhea to become more regular. i have had several docs recommend them. You can buy a 10 pack of culturelle at walgreens to try it out. You are right the pain meds are probably causing you more trouble. Do you have to take these all the time?
I have fibro, and i just had a huge surgery during the summer, they took 5 huge cyst out-one. the biggest being 17cm. so for right now. I take 20m of methodone a day
