I’m feeling really down and fed up. I have advanced MS and seem to be losing control of my bowels. Either I’m badly constipated or if I take anything then I get about 5 seconds notice when I need to go to the loo. Needlews to say I rarely make it there in time.
I have an appointment to see a bowel nurse at the end of August but I think this is an MS problem and not a bowel problem. ie nerves telling the brain that I want to empty my bowels have been shredded and message bot getting to the brain.
I do take Senna to stop constipation but sometimes it is too pwerful. Going o reduce from 2 pills a night to 1 but frightened constipation will return.
Anyone got any sensible advice on how to deal with this problem. MS consultant just talks about bowel hygiene. I’m getting very disillusioned
