I wrote some days ago about having had 2 surgeries and a 3 week hospital stay. After I was discharged my bowels were perfect but started constipating. I took senna and then the nightmare began. I have been on Dicetel and taking lactulax (a laxative ) for over a week now. My BMs have been minimal and the pain is still there. TOday I forgot the Dicetel and I had a little better BM but then the pain got bad. I'm getting so depressed about this whole thing. The pain is disruptive and at times disabling, I can't plan, I can't do my normal activities, sometimes I can hardly walk. I have 2 little kids and my husband has been mom and dad for the last 2 months, when this nightmare started. My surgeon and GP are not being of any help. I want my life back!!!
