really i am doing very bad, the pain is one thing, and I would be here
more but i am staying alot with gandma, I never knpw if there will be
anther day with her!
right ow I am struggling with the bowel moving, NOTHING has worked
except enemas, and I have taken 5 in the past 3 weeks, now they have
told me to take ducolax, it has a stimulant in it, and nothing yet, and
if that dont work, take another dose today.
If it does not work I have to take that nasty citrate magnesia, very
strong. Then once I an cleaned out they have me taking 8 tablespoons of
dupholac syrup,safe for the bowel. I am very much pain today, just have
to get bowels moving somehow. zi am upset and scared why they will not
move. the pain i somewhat better, but now with this pullin the bowels,
from not going it hurts ALOT!
I am oing to nursing home, I will be back later, rally I am feeling
