We went to Northampton Hospital this morning to see an MS nurse who specialises in bowel management.
I’ve been managing with Laxido and glycerin suppositories and i go regularly and easily, but never feel comfortable afterwards, There’s always a feeling of not having fully emptied my bowel, and being bloated and very uncomfortable down there for much of the day.
So she is suggesting I start using irrigation, with a preference for the Peristeen system, though she’s not insisting that I use that one.
I know this has been regularly discussed, but I’m interested to know how any of you get on with this method, especially if it eases the bloating at all. She says it will.
ps i can’t wait to try it, and long for the day when i don’t have to drink oh so delicious Laxido!
