I have had such excruciating bms I have not eaten or gone to the bathroom in over 48 hours! It's not that I'm constipated, my body is trying to push it out but it is so painful i actually can't help but stop it! It's actually unbearable... I've tried: stool softeners, epsom salt baths, lots of water, preperation h. nothing is helping. I am battling my body right now because it's trying to push out this large, hard mass but I can't take the pain! Please help!
Hello! A non-physician here. I have had experience with this. I came across something that worked for me quite by accident. I've used it for 2 years and never fails. Several years ago in the winter I was having terrible stomach and bowel troubles. Worse than I had had for years. In desperation I bought some Aloe Juice at Walmarts. It's only a little over $6 a gallon. I drink about 4 oz. To my amazement during those troubles it gave me severe "runs" ... sorry. Nothing pretty about these conditions. Later when I was better and feeling bloated from not going regularly, brought on mostly by pain meds, I thought, I'll try that Aloe Juice. 4 oz. Now even 2 years later if I do not feel like I've been moving right I drink it, sometimes 2x a day. Later I was talking to a doc while visiting on an unrelated issue. I just happened to mention what the Aloe Juice was good for me. He matter of facting said, Oh yes, Aloe Juice would be good for that. I've never heard that before. If you want there's plenty on Google about drinking Aloe Juice. The Walmart gallon is made for drinking, nothing else. Give it a try, let me know. I understand your pain. Jack ":-Dx
