|recently had endoscopy and colonoscopy....what type of diet does your wife eat? Is she eating a high fiber (cereal) for breakfast with a fruit? Does lunch consist of maybe skinless grilled chicken in a salad and supper another low fat high fiber meal? I had to change the entire way of eating. I also had to add the benefiber to a few things I ate to get myself regulated. She could very well have a lazy Sphinxter muscle as well. I'm not a doctor, but have been going to a gastro Dr for the past year. Maybe take a stool softener to keep the hemorrohoids in check. They can be a real pain in hte A$$. A lot of people suggested the colon cleanse, but I was told my A$$ says EXIT only, and this was not healthy. Has she considered a gentle laxative to maybe get things going on through?|
|Hello, I'm new here and am typing this on behalf of my wife. This has been going on for quite a while.
Let me preface by saying over the last 14-15 months she's had a colonoscopy, berrium enema, stomach ultrasound. These symptoms still exist and she is VERY frustrated. We have an appointment next Tuesday with a new doctor.
Every morning before work approx. 5am est she has the urge to poop, but can only go a little bit. This feeling lasts throughout the day. She tells me she has like a pressure on her butt that she feels like she has to go but can't completely evacuate. She does have some Hemmoroids also. Sometimes experiences lower abdominal pain but not a constant one.
We're trying, Miralax, fiber pills, acidipholous, and she drinks alot of water. This sounds like constipation to me but nothing seems to be helping her.
Any advice? Thoughts? Thanks
