Update: Gastric Trouble

Doc thinks my left side middle quadrant pain was due to a sort of back-up causing a distention. (I've been having hard stool for about three weeks now. Going daily, but pretty labored effort.)

Script for miralax to take one tsp with glass of water, to get things soft and moving again. If that doesn't work, off to a gastro I go! (When I had my surgery in March, stool softeners were pretty ineffective.)

I cannot in my wildest dreams imagine what an impaction must be like. Shudder at the thought!

Thanks everyone.

Update: Gastric Trouble

I hope the Miralax provides you with some relief. I've had bowel and GI problems for many years but they have gotten worse since the hysterectomy. Not sure whether the two are related, but I can sympathize with what you're going thru.
