Megacolon healing time?

Posted by minajo @minajo, Mar 25 11:42am

My 48 yr old daughter with autism/ epilepsy on Zonisamide for several months, began adding 2# monthly tho dr said not from frug? But she ended up hospitalized with extreme abdominal distention, megacolon and needed enemas, etc.. now on Lactulose and Colace which has helped get impaction cleared a lot but does the megacolon take a long time to shrink? Bein nonverbal is so difficult for her to express pain, discomfort but she was very traumatized from hospital stay so wondering about reversal of megacolon?
Thank you
