Re: Has anyone used Movicol for constipation
I know this is a really late reply. But I am suffering from the same as the OP.
I have just got out of hospital after 2 weeks, with severe constipation.
I was put on movicol, Senna and they tried Picolax once which was horrible.
The movicol doesn't seem to work for me, and I find the senna is a lot better.
However, even though the constipation has gone I have still been getting very bad kidney pains, along with abdominal pain and on my sides going up to my chest.
I have been trying to avoid the pain killers as this can make you more constipated but I have had to give in at least once a day and take Tramadol.
I have had an MRI, ultra sound and X-rays and all came back saying everything was fine, apart from constipation and slightly inflamed kidneys.
They didn't treat me for the kidneys, I'm not sure why? Could this be the reason?
Blood and urine tests all came back okay, no infections.
Really not sure what to do. Hoping someone has an answer!
