there is blockage from being constipated and not taking care of it in time.
Under my normal meds. (opiates that cause constipation) I liked to take care of the problem more naturally. With diet. I have activia,Dan Active,fruit and a bran cereal. With 2 additional servings of some kind of fresh fruit daily. And in mot cases that works fine.
But after my surgery, the Dr. prescribed me Docusate Sodium Because I would be on more opiates. I don't like to take any additional meds like that If I can manage with diet. Which I did.
But my diet was changed because of having country breakfasts for company for a few days. I should have used the meds or the stool softener-laxative that I usually use, when I need something extra.
Now if youre squeamish you can stop reading right now!
Too many days went by without me paying attention to what was happening to me. and by the time I realized what I had done it was too late!!! I had bonafide BLOCKAGE!
I took the pills he gave me morn, noon, and night...Nothing! And another day went by for the blockage to grow. I then used my stuff, double dose morn, and night... Nothing!
Now I'm scared, thinking I'm going to die from toxic shock!
So I new I had to go or else! I had pressure on my prostate and what ever else and couldn't pee either. And I hurt from bottom to top like I was going to explode. And had cramps that were making life impossible. So Used suppositories. No luck! Just burning and cramps tripled. I couldn't button my pants cause I couldn't stand the pressure on my gut!All I had done was make all this stuff that was supper soft and putting massive pressure to come out. But the blockage wouldn't allow it past! I told my wife to hurry down to the Pharmacy & get me an enema thingy and more suppositories and everything she could think of. Or take me to the ER. She was taking too long and I found something to make my own enema, loaded it with hot soapy water. And shot the blockage, middle, sides, front, back, right in the middle of it. trying to break it up, NO DICE!!! So I did it again the same way, and this time there was an explosion, I gave birth to triplets and everything else came out behind it at 130 mi. per hr. :jawdrop:
And that's why I haven't been on the forums for several days!!! I've been miserable, then recuperating. And I think I need reconstructive surgery!!! :& :sick:
So, if you did't get sick, and read the whole thing through, DON'T LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU!!!
What happened was I was blocked with something that couldn't possibly make it past. Without a surgical cut.
Good luck, Jim
