That is the same with me Tara, the mucous is disgusting. Don't you just love trying to explain all this. I too, have not really had a bowel movement for about a week now, I just cannot even go anymore without a laxative, and when I do go after a lax, it hurts me even more. I cannot even stand the pain after a laxative anymore, I have to take them tho to go, they have not worked in the past week tho!
They usaully do after 6-7 senkot, and the pain clinic said that is alot of senekot to take all the time. What are we supposed to do to go?
