First thank you for accepting me into this community, My problems started the day my resection was done..I have stayed SEVERELY constipated since. I thought my jpouch would finally bring me some quality of life, sadly there has been very few great days.
I may go 20-25 days without a bowel movement. Like now, I have taken 10 stool softeners a day and still no relieve in 16 days at all. The last bowel movement I had was almost nothing and (sorry for this) but it stunk so bad it made me sick. I've been waking up in pain on both sides of my lower abdomen for a few days now, it's so bad I have to get up immediately.
I go to the Dr. Wednesday, I haven't been to a Dr in 18 years over my jpouch, my insurance ran out and the Dr wouldn't see me anymore so I've been alone thinking this was normal. Any advice or anything you can tell me will be so appreciated.
Thank you Dawn
