Discussions that mention bentyl

Bowel Disorders board


I had post here before about having a colonoscopy which found nothing except an irritation where the stool gets stuck, it's irritated because I usually have to use my fincers to get the stool to come down and out.

Anyway, last night I had the worst cramps in my stomach and terrilble nausea, I thought I was going to have to go to the hospital! I was so scared! I didn't know what else to to but to take 30mg of Bentyl and an ativan to control the pain. I also tried lying down with a heating pad on my stomach, and this helped a bit as long as i didn't move! But suddenly i felt a need to evacuate, so I got up and sat on the toilet after 5 minutes I had an explosion and what felt like a marble came out of me with loose watery stools after it. I take Milk of Magnesia every night because lately I can only go if the stool is watery, formed stools reach a point but don't come out. Why would it take all day for this to happen? Usually the laxative works first thing in the morning. Why is this happening to me? I used to be able to make formed stools without much trouble. My doctor said these thing only get worse and I'm kind of young to be relying on laxatines to go. He said something like you don't want to live like this for the next 30 years! I am freaking out, because I can't handle how much this is affecting my social life! I'm 37 years old and I don't wanna live like this anymore!
I'd like to hear from anyone, please,
