I'm so nervous taking a laxative, because I fear if there is not an actual obstruction (and instead it is anatomical), that I'll just feel that much worse! Just the unfamiliar pain that I am getting when attempting a BM is paralyzing me enough to not try much else.
I do have an appointment with Dr. Shen, just happens to be Oct 24th. I was going to call today, but called NYU's IBD (as directed in the ER yesterday) but was met with more resistance. Incredibly, I finally got in touch with a clinical team member and then a PA - might just be some hope for me yet. Waiting a call back from scheduling.
