Hi Everyone! :H
Has anyone with spine problems ever experienced bladder and bowel problems? I know many of you know what has been going on with me,if not you can read my last post.Ever since i've had bladder frequency my bowel habits have changed,but not like i'm going all the time or spastic.I keep getting constipated i guess would be the right word. I seem to go for long periods of time without having a bowel movement.I don't get any sensation to go.I used to be very predictable ,three times a day and now its once maybe every three or fours days.It doesn't matter how much fruit or fibre or water i take in nothing has helped and i end up having to take a laxative.I had this same thing happen to me before my neck surgery.I had a bad fall that really hurt my lower back hip area and i didn't have a bowel movement for over a week.I was concerned so i went to the doctors and he gave me an enema to take,but it didn't work.I had to wait two more days and when i did go i screamed like XXXX.My insides were so sore it was like having a baby.I just worry about the lack of sensation to have a movement.It just doesn't seem normal to me.I know if i tell my doctor she's just going to blow it off like she did my bowel frequency problem,so i was just thinking that i would ask all of you if you's think that there is anything to be worried about? Should i go to the night clinic and get checked out or is it something that just might pass on its own.Sorry this is so long i didn't intend it to be.
