... after not going for 2 days. now im going like crazy and producing burning diarrhea that is making me bleed. could i be getting internal damage from this? Is this an acid? could it destroy the cilia in my intestinal tract?
Polyethylene Glycol 3350 - I just had a colon resection and I was constipated. so I took one dose?

Gotta say love the name lol. I'm sorry noone has answered your question. I'm not a medical professional qualified to answer but have been through what you are going through. The best advice I can give you is to call your doctor. I have had several bowel resections and the last one they removed my entire colon so I understand and empathize. Since I now have no large intestine I have (what I call) acid diarrhea chronically and sometimes it makes me bleed. Is the blood bright red? The colon is what removes the acid from our stool so its something that I just have to deal with and believe me it sucks!! I don't know how much of your colon they removed but seriously sweetie your doc that performed the resection needs to be aware of what's going on. I hope that you get some relief. My thoughts and prayers are with you. If I can be of support to you I am here. Best wishes.

Please call your sugeon as soon as possble, and like tlc said... sorry we missed your question. OMG, gurl, did a doc tell you to take that particular laxative. If so, point me in his/her direction and I'll take care of them for you. About the bleeding, if it is bright red, could be because of the irritation or incision. Please call your surgeon.
Let us know how u r doing too.
Peace out and let ur karma flow...
