Is anyone else like this? I may go for several days without a BM and then, usually after a large dinner, I suffer with a terrible stomach ache that usually lasts intermittently for ~ 1/2 hour combined with the tell-tale left side loud gurgling! I may or may not sit on the pot "willing" this "cement block" to shift so I may get some relief! An eon later, I can actually start going but the misery continues! I sometimes get so nauseous that I have to fan my face vigorously to avoid vomiting (and have even vomited). My last meal is obviously an unwelcome introduction to my digestive symstem and something has to give!! When I finally get rid of whatever is holding everything up, I am rewarded with a gallon of diarrhea! Utterly spent, I make my shaky way back to the couch while the rest of the family avoids the vicinity of the bathroom for the next hour! I am totally (and I mean totally, cleaned out) and is it any wonder I don't need to go again for the next 3 days?! And then the cycle can start all over again! Yipee! Oh for the nice, daily, one-wiper! Cheers!
