I have had a problem with my bowels for so long and am getting so frustrated. I was in the hospital in April of 2000 due to a sist which blocked my bowel. Six weeks later i was back to work. then again in October of 2000 i once again had a problem with my bowels. waiting 13 days before having a bowel movement. Do you think this is normal? I have been told to take prodium plus on a daily basis but gag every time i try to take it. I am on a citrus fibre pill also which does no good and find myself taking senekot all the time to enamble my bowels to move. I am really getting tired of the whole ordeal.I have adjusted my diet but still no luck. What do you suggest. Please give me some advice if you can
