Bowel movement every 2 weeks!!


I am a 38 yr old female and I can only go every 2 weeks if that! I am on some medications which I know plays a part of this but to back me up like this? I swear I look 8 months pregnant! I am short of breath and I feel awful! I have had this problem for a few years now but this is the worst its gotten. I currently take Suboxone, Paxil & Neurontin. I just got insurance last week and I am having a colonoscopy done next week. Which brings me to another subject I wanted to talk about. I had this same test done about 7 years ago and I was still on suboxone at the time, they gave me the twilight for the colonoscopy and I started screaming when they started cause I felt everything they were doing!! Maybe it was because of the suboxone (its a opiate aganist) so this time this doctor said were going to put you to sleep using Propofol. Has anyone ever had that happen to them? They stopped the test after a few minutes. Anyhow back to what I was talking about. I have tried everthing over the counter for this, even the citrate stuff I drank 3 bottels and NOTHING!! So this doc said do 3 days of prep and you should be cleaned out. Well see ...I am trying to stay positive. I can tell you wen I tried getting off the suboxone a year ago I lost 40 pounds and was going to the bathroom every hour. Like I said I know the pills I take are part of the reason I am like this. Someone told me they had a friend that was so backed up they actually started to vomit there poop. Is that possible? Wow how awful!!

Re: Bowel movement every 2 weeks!!

I am 39 and have crohns so it is normal for me to go only once a week but recently I went 25 days with no bowel movement. I had abdominal pain, vomitting everyday, pressure, and loss of appitite. Finally called my gi doc. and he schedualed a colonoscopy but the prep did not work so he sent me home. ^ hrs. later the prep took affect and then i had stool coming out of vagina so i went to the er. They foound the stool in vagina so they did a ct ( the prep from that cleaned me right out). They found nothing on the ct. So off to the gi doc. again for another colonoscopy. I also had a bad experience the first time. I was not out enough and I felt the whole thing. I also take a lot of meds that have a sleepy affect. Now they make sure they give me more anistita than normal. So in conclution do the 3 day prep and that should clean you out but next time dont wait two weeks to see a doc. Do you see a regular surgen or a GI doc? You should see a Gastrointerologist since you have this happen often. Your not alone!!!!
