Chronic constipation. Backed up stool!

I been having chronic constipation for a year. I usually deal with it by taking lots of flax seed oil and increasing my fiber and water intake. Yesterday, the pain really got bad, and I decided to visit the hospital for the first time. Well they did ultrasound, blood test plus cat scan. All came back negative. I was then told that i have alot of backed stool. What else is new? Well, Atleast I am now sure of my problem. O.k what do I do next? Should I go get a colonoscopy? I need some good advice. Thanks

Re: Chronic constipation. Backed up stool!

The ER did not tell you to take a laxative??

If you get a colonoscopy the cleaning out procedure using Go-lytely will certainly get rid of all your backed up stool.

I just wrote a post in the Information Acrhives Thread today about -- Normal BMs -- it is the Sticky Thread at the top of this page.

I wish you well---Harry

Try a spoon full of olive oil before you go to bed. Wheat grass helped me alot. Wheat germ oil capsules help alot too

Re: Chronic constipation. Backed up stool!

I have recently started taking Green tea capsules (in a blister pack from Wal-Mart) for weight loss. Unfortunately no help there, but I have gone from very irregular bowel movements - as in once a week or longer even - to more than once daily. It has been a miracle help to me and I feel great. I will never stop taking it. It is definatley worth a try.

Re: Chronic constipation. Backed up stool!

I dealt with chronic constipation for 20 years and finally said "This is enough!". Went and had colonoscopy in 2001. Because they couldn't really find anything and because of my symptoms I was diagnosed with IBS with predominant constipation. They put me on zelnorm and it has worked very well for me. Good luck!

Re: Chronic constipation. Backed up stool!

Hi. I had chronic constipation all my life, painful bm's, etc. After having my first colonoscopy at age 43 (my grandmother died of colon cancer so I got screened a little early) my doctor told me that my intestines were tortioned, twisted, which is why I was constipated. He prescribed something called Miralax powder which I have taken now every morning for the past 6 years. So I would go ahead with the colonoscopy and see what they say. Good luck.
