So my friends mom has been constipated for about a month; you can feel the hardness in her belly. She is on blood thinners and advice because of a Stent she had inserted a while back. Everyday she takes stool softeners, drinks prune juice, drinks miralax, has had sepositories, ect. Basically everything in the book. She went to geisinger because it has just gotten so bad she can't stand it. They did an MRI and an enema and said "there is nothing we can do for you" and sent her home. This is life threatening and they barely tried. We are trying to get a second opinion, so if anyone knows anything we can do please let us know. Thank you so much!
Emilieg, I feel for your friends mom. I, too, am severely constipated and have several stents. I read an article that said this could be problomatic. I think we both need to talk to gastro & cardiac docs. I am to the point I cannot "go" without manual help. Even with gloves it is gross and disgusting and only helps a little, but I am desperate to get it out of me. Very painful!! Best of Luck...
