Joan, I have terrible pain. I've had problems with C since the age of 8. I'm now 23 and the pain has been unbearable for the last 3 years.I took the first set of markers on Wednesday, the second set on Thursday, and the third set on Friday and had my X-ray on Monday.The x-ray, showed gas and slow transit.I've been told to reduce fibre intake and increase my fluids and stay off laxitives as much as possible(which is good cause I'll only take them every 3 weeks or so)oh and I have a daily 10 minute exercise to do to. I go back in 4 weeks for my next appointment.Leanne
Leanne, if you stopped all fiber and laxatives to take the test, how the h*ll did you have a BM? Did you use suppositories? Feel no urge? I have horrible, horrible urges every morning which can't be satisfied with a bm. I have incomplete evacuation (stool gets stuck in my rectum) & I have to use suppositories to get it out. Please reply, Joan
Joan,I've got used to not going for weeks and weeks at a time.When you go for a transit test you can't use suppositories either.I have the same problem I have a urge to go but can't and it feels like something has got stuck.The doctor also told me that my sphinter(sp) doesn't work wekk and that's way it's hard to get anything out.... well something to that description. She has given me exercises to do for 10 minutes each day that are suppose to help.Leanne
