    Lightbulb Wish I was Regular!!LOL!!

    I haven't had regular BM in months, and the only thing that helps when it gets uncomfortable and bloated and down right aggravating, is Miralax (local drugstore), pour it is your bottle water or whatever your drinking and it gets you moving by the next day with no runs or cramps (unless your really backed up, its your own natural pain from being overstocked). I tried a cleanse before, but i must admit that one has me a little intrigued!!

    I've been taking the Dual Action Cleanser from WalMart, too. I got all the way up to taking the 3 colon clear tablets twice a day since it said to take up to that many if you're not having up to 2 good BM's a day. Well, I still wasn't. I just wasn't impressed with the stuff. I thought it was gonna clean me out and make my belly flatter (at least that's what it advertises. Glad it's working for you, though. I know you feel a heck of a lot better now.

    for those of you still currently having poop issues.....seriously.....try miralax before it gets too bad. i went through these episodes like misty described...sweating, thinking i was about to die every time i had to go (which was never) ......but enough to last a lifetime............i went through it for about 2 whole months before i started taking miralax and haven't had a problem since. before miralax i tried all kinds of stool softeners, drank tons of water, fiber.....EVERYTHING i could think of to keep this horrible horrible experience from happening again, and it was the only thing that worked.

    I'm seriously not trying to gross people out, but the thing that came out was purple (from old blood) and about the size of my leg from the knee down. I sweat so bad that hour I had to have a cold washcloth, take all my clothes off and talk to my sister cuz her voice calms me and she talked to me the whole time so I was forgetting I was going until the pain kicked in.

    wow............i'm glad you found something that works. i know how you feel about the crying when you poop thing. i've compared my bowel movements to having a baby out my butt haha! just imagine being in mcdonald's (when you don't even poop in public) and having a mom come in with her 12 kids and wait on the stall you're in because there is no toilet paper in the others. that was horrifying. i wanted to shout "sorry lady but this could be all night. grab a paper towel for god sakes! i mean, what mom with small kids doesn't leave the house with baby wipes, anyway? people are so inconsiderate to our poop issues. thank god she gave up on me and left before my butt exploded. THANK GOD or allah or whoever that i found MIRALAX cus now i have the opposite problem. i still don't go often, but when i do it's like the best thing that's ever happened to me. i remember sitting on the toilet delirious from pain and having actual visions of going to the ER with a turd the size of a fetus being pulled out with metal objects. not fun.

    Hey Misty, I am curious...how long had it been for you with no poo? I know if I skip one day I feel it and my pants get tight! Here are a few suggestions to keep things going now that you have gotten back on track.

    1. take an OTC stool softener every night with a glass of warm water (my aunt always swore by the warm water trick).
    2. eat All Bran or Fiber One cereal for breakfast every AM. It has about 24 grams of fiber per cup and is low in calories/fat/sugar, etc.
    3. avoid bananas and cheese for a while. They are both binding.
    4. get some dried prunes to snack on. I don't know how many calories they are off hand but believe me, one or two a day should be plenty.
    5. Try the new yogurts that have 'bifidus regularis' in them. I think there is "Activia" and "DanActive". I haven't tried them but have friends who attest to their effectiveness.
    6. Fiber One makes a totally YUMMY bran cereal bar that has tons of fiber. Great snack idea and all the extra fiber couldn't hurt.
    7. when all else fails...try a glycerin suppository. My mom has always had problems in the poo area so she has them on hand for the real difficult times.

    Good luck!
    Keep it flowing!

    Hey Misty,
    I feel for ya. I am glad you got some releif and was able to have a BM.
    I personaly dont have normal BM's either. My Dr refered me to get a colonopsy (spelling). And the Dr wasnt able to do the full colonopsy, he said " you are the worst case I have seen in a long time" and he diagonised (sp) me has having IBS. All he did for me was tell me to take 2 fiber cons every morning. That didnt do crap. (no pun intended...pun intended) lol Anyway, I need something. I did try the Slim Quick 7 Day Cleanse. It helped some, but if i am as backed up as the Dr said I probablly need something more. When I get some extra money maybe I should try the Dual action cleanse ??

    Yay! so glad this worked for you!

    One thing to be careful about is making sure you keep the good bacteria in your intestines though! The thing w/ cleanses that work so well is that they can flush out the good bacteria we need that allows us to break down the food and move it through our bodies. If you find that after the cleanse you're having issues you may want to take a probiotic supplement.

    I take Fem Dophilus (google it if you'd like to know more) to maintain a healthy intestinal tract AND because it helps w/ female issues like UTIs and BV infetions. I like that it does both!

    Stool softeners work great! I got so backed up that I bled a lot. It was so hard; I just about cried pushing it out. I freaked out! And the doctor and staff had no clue what to do. He told me I must have Kidney stones and asked me if I have, had children. I found a post about someone here having the same issues I was having and gave it a try and it worked! I went back and told the doctor, and told him he should let anyone else know that comes to him.

    YAY-POO 4 U!
    I don't know what other things you've tried, but I have a few suggestions. I've had irritable bowel for years, and my pregnancies really messed up my intestines. But FYI, here are a few things I've found to help. (OH the stories I could tell you....)
    Senna-aka stool softeners. you can get them OTC and they are cheap. I used to take one or two before bed and move in the am. (it helps when you're on painpills too!) I've also had to resort to using an enema, only once after I came home with my baby. The tea is a good idea too.
    Other suggestions from my dr. that I couldn't tolerate was to add bulk fiber-metamucil, citrcel or the like. Metamucil even had "cookies" that you could eat instead! (I would probably have to dunk them in chocolate! LOL!!)
    Whatever you do tho, after you get "cleaned out", make sure you DRINK YOUR WATER!! Its the only thing that keeps the insides lubed and things moving!

    Default Doo doo on Number 2!

    As most of you know, the past 4 months I've been tortured by doo doo because it had decided to camp out inside me instead of going the eff away like it used to!

    Well, I spoke with the Dr. when I went for my weigh in last week and he suggested I use Dual-Action Cleanse. I found it at Wal-Mart and although a bit pricey, at $40.00, I figured it was my last resort. (I was told if I didn't go #2 in a week I'd be admitted into the hospital to have hourly enemas, so I HAD to do this!)

    There is a total body purifier pill, and a colon clear formula pill as well as a green tea pill. You take it for 30 days and it cleans your system out. I began taking one pill per day, and I was shocked and appalled at the outcome!

    This is TMI, but the initial doo doo happened yesterday afternoon and it hurt like hell. I was told it would hurt because nothing had come out in so long it was just hardened in my intestine walls so I expected pain but dayum! To cry when going #2 is not a normal occurrance. After yesterday's initial 2 lb loss of doo doo (I was on the toilet for over an hour), I've gone 5 more times since then and feel almost "normal" again, thank God! I like this stuff because it does not make you have the runs, it's all solid and easily comes out, so I'm very thankful that this worked and I didn't have to go to the hospital.

    The only thing I suggest if someone else is thinking about using this, is that you take the green tea pills before 3 pm or not at all. The combination of this and the phen will keep you up FOREVER! I was up for 29 hours because I took it at 8 pm, so take it early and you should be fine.

    Can I get a woot woot for #2!!!!!!!!!!
