ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I wake with pain in my abdomen every day. That's because I must take a stool softner , two fiber tabs and a teaspoon of Miralax every night. Once I drink coffee I have a bowel movement, but the pain stays. Sometimes it's very hard and dry, sometimes it's normal and sometimes it's diarrhea. By late afternoon, I usually have that "full" feeling in my lower intestines and must use a glycerin suppository to "clean out" what stool is remaining. Every day there is pain. I have had two laparoscopic surgeries and 4 colonoscopies. The doctor(s) cannot find anything. I even swallowed a "camera pill" that took pictures of my small intestines. No one can give me relief. The prescription Linzess makes me deathly ill. Any prescription meds cause horrible reactions and give no relief. I cannot travel. I cannot go anywhere early in the morning. I cannot share a bathroom with anyone. I have no life.
