So far, not so good
I tried the fasting and it did help a bit but I got very weak. I could only do it a few days and had to eat something. I added Kiwi fruit and I can't tell the difference. I think it's because when I'm in this much pain it's hard to tell is something is helping even a little. I used to eat tons of fiber, now it seems I can't tolerate it at all now.
Thank you for your advice everyone so far though, it appreciated.
But this pain is wearing me down. I'm trying so many things. Things that should work. My doc wants me to up my Mirilax and not take the Senna. So I did that for a few days and omg the pain was even worse, I had to get back on something so I tried a super cleanse with cascara sagrada and a lot of herbs like slipper elm, marshmellow root etc.. Finally went a decent amount but 3 hours later the pain is back.. Just constant.. Night time is the worst, and in the morning is not much better due to the pressure on my sides or back from the mattress.
I keep telling these doctors it all comes down to this:: If I'm empty, I'm in no pain, like after a complete clean out. As soon as I start eating, later on in the day the lower back pain / side pain / lower ab pain just comes right back. No matter what I eat, and I'm pretty restricted by this point. I'm basically living off oatmeal and soup at the moment. It's almost as if my poor colon has no protective lining and can't take the gastric juices and bile my body is making to break down the food. And since it's not moving it just sits there and burns.
Feels like i'm at the point where the stimulants may be harming me but at the same time without their help I'm in just as much pain with no motility.
Just venting again. I have a date with a second colonoscopy Feb 19th at least. And even though I can't afford it, I have an appointment with a really good Naturopathic doctor, who will at least listen to me. On top of that I'm finally seeing a psychologist just to help deal with the mental anguish part of all this. I just can't do this alone anymore.
Funny thing is I'm actually a very positive person! Here's hoping next time I post I'm in a better place than where I am now.
All the best. Hope your Naturopathy doctor is able to guide you well.. I understand its expensive. But you can get big amount of relief (if not complete cure) if your doctor is competent.
Do share what he / she diagnosed..
