Re: Constipation & Gas Pain?
Hi AFH...when I was in the hospital, I was given Simethicone for gas and Colace for constipation. Neither one worked and they sent me home without having a bowel movement. I later had a terrible bowel impaction. After that, I had to use Peri-Colace (it has a stimulant laxative with the stool softener) for the next seven or eight weeks until I was totally up and around, back to my usual activity. The Peri-Colace gave me a little cramping and diarrhea a couple of times until I figured out the right dose to take, but it was preferable to the constipation.
