constipation after prep
Colonoscopy prep did not work completely; 5 days later still no bowel movement. So doctor recommended mag citrate (whole bottle) and 4 dulcolax laxatives which I did and it totally cleaned me out. Felt great, but now 4 days later again no bowel movement. Painful, gas that won't expel, no feeling of having to go, just blocked and very uncomfortable. Tried Milk of Magnesia for 3 days – nothing. Can anyone recommend something that would just give me a natural bowel movement without too much at once which then causes me to backup more. I drink water, take 400 mg mag oxide. Tired 1/2 dose of Miralax before and it was uncontrollable bowel movements (going without even knowing I was going). Obviously very sensitive. Diagnosed with SIBO about 2 years ago but went off of protocol because of eating disorder ramping up from restrictio of diet. Very frustrated. My diet is healthy – berries, whole grains, greek plain yogurt, salmon, brown rice, peanut butter, broccoli, spinach, eggs. Nothing in large amounts, just feel like it is a healthy balance diet.
