Sos I Cant Poop!!!!! =( Caution May Be Tmi **UPDATE**

Oh you poor thing! I know the hospital will be able to help you, please keep us posted!

I was the one who posted about the Fleet enema with mineral oil, because I learned my lesson after one trip to the ER! The trick with that is to use it before you get to the point of needing the ER!

Just to explain: most of my bowel issues are not hyst related. I have chronic kidney stones, plus I've had abdominal surgery (not the hyst) that makes me tend towards constipation anyway. So if I get a long kidney stone attack, and I'm on heavy narcotics for several days, I have to be extra careful of constipation leading to bowel impaction. It's landed me in the ER once. I'm not going there again! Lol.
Unread 03-27-2008, 11:31 AM glad to be home from ER...heres what happened.

So. I went to the ER because i hadnt had a BM in 12 days! They of course found other things to take care of for me like aparently i have pnuemonia still (had it @ time of dishcarge), Pulminary Embolism, the nerve damage cause the stupid CT guy in radiology made my iv infaltrate and the dye contrast went into my arm nerves and muscle. I have no feeling in my right 3 fingers. Funny how all those things took prority obviously but me having to GO...was handled last =(.

So they took Xrays ultrasounds and Ct and saw that the BM was indeed impacted so much she said there is NO way i would of been able to pass it on my own. My DH was thinking i just wasnt trying hard enough. I passed out twice on the toiliet from trying too hard. (rolling eyes) they had to MANUALLY break the BM up. She went through my Vagina and pushed through there and she pulled out thru...uh the anus. (blushing as i type). It hurt like a MOTHER but i said to myself it will all be better in the end. SO she said she got as much as she could reach then tried to send me down the whole FLEET road. I explained once again i had tried anything and everything regarding the fleet line as well as other OTC laxatives and enamas. So she said well there is 1 other thing....this iv type bag with soapy water and a long tube that was inserted. So basically the water goes in as much as u can stand. u hold it in tightly for a few min then race to the toliet to let it out.

LADIES...It was the 1st time i have smiled in SUCH a long time. lol even my nurses clapped for me. So i did that a few times and had soooo much relief. It did not hurt @ all coming out. I was able to take a bag home so that i could do it again if i still have trouble going. I cant believe i spent all that money and time waiting for that other stuff to work and all i needed was available in my kitchen (soap and water lol). Who woulda thunk.

So i stayed the night there and gotta say i wished id gone in sooner. But i kept listening to my DH about trying harder and try this med and messed around and got sick behind it. I had fevers and chills it was definetly starting to effect my body. So my advice to any1 in the same situation... go to the ER if u find that nothing else is working for u. The more u wait the worst it is. Oh and the name of the stuff was Gent-L-Kare Cleansing Enema Set. Comes in a box and like i said looks like a iv bag w long skinny tube. It was the best thing ever.

I was actually thinking of you a little while ago. I was reading posts about our favorite subject and remembered that you were having such a terrible time.

I am so glad (I know not as glad as you) that you are better now.

Congrats on feeling better. How crazy is it that we can celebrate such things!!!!

Let the recovery resume ....

Blessings on you ....

Drink acouple of tablespoons of castor oil. It's gross but really does the job.
