I've read that the neuropathy can affect your bowels, your bladder, etc. I've had trouble urinating for about 6 months now, have to really strain. Anyone else have this trouble and found a way to improve things? This is getting ridiculous, I look 6 months pregnant and can't even fit into my fat clothes!!
I read this and thought omg that is me, i have always had trouble with my bowels, (i dont think i have any, or they dont work) i have been to the Doctors on several occasions and she has told me to drink plenty water, orange squashes, boiled cooled water, but none of them do a thing for me, my Daughter who is now 10 years old is exactly the same as me, sometimes her stomach looks like she has swallowed a water melon or a Football. I can go for 15-19 days with no bowel movement, i suffer with terrible stomach ache and bloating. I have found one tablet that works well for me Dulco-Lax Pearles, they are tiny little pills, i normally take 2 at night and if they dont work i take a further two the following evening which normally works well, i like these pills as they dont cause me any discomfort like other laxatives i have tried, maybe you should give this a go, hope this helps you
