Constipation has been one of my worst symptoms and one I have had the longest.
Beofre getting my DX I had ungone many tests to find out what the problem was. They did an x-ray and found that I was fully compacted right up both sides of my abdomin with faeses (sp). When they could not find out what was causing this they sent me to a shrink (idiots).
Anyway I am still as bad as ever and have tried everything from changing my diet, all meds drinking more water but nothing works. At my worst I go once every 5 weeks. At my best it’s once a week. I was talking to my bowel/bladder nurse and she thinks that the only thing left is to use peristeen. Does anyone else have to do this? Would you recommend it.
I think if I was to get cleared out it would make me feel so much better as I am in so much pain at night and it’s bound to make the fatigue worse when I am so blocked up.
It is also frustrating as I joined slimming world 6 weeks ago and although I am doing well (lost 16.5lb) it is annoying knowing that it would help if you were passing your food quicker lol!
Thanks in advance, Lindsay
