Here I DON’T Go Again! — 3 Comments

  1. DB, I do not envy you at all. I am all to familiar with the constipation both caused by PD, and drug induced from the PD meds.

    Personally I would much rather deal with going to much, than not at all.

    Pardon the pun, but I hope everything comes out all right for you 🙂

  2. Also, I’m surprised the Go Lytely didn’t work for you. The standing joke in the facility where I work is that it should have been named “go fast and furious!”

    On a more serious and perhaps more helpful note, there is a product called Miralax that might work for you. It’s a prescription medication that comes in a white powder form that has to be dissolved in at least 8oz of H2O. When it is dissolved it is totally clear and tasteless. We use that for quite a few people. it seems to work well when nothing else does.

    Just a thought.

  3. Hi Joe,

    I was surprised that the first Go-Lytely didn’t take care of it, too. But it was evident when I did the second round that it had not completely worked the first time.

    As for Miralax, it’s one of the Bowel Retraining meds I have been taking now for several years, and I love it. It can be bought at Walmart in the large bottle now over the counter.

    It goes in my cereal and I never know it is there.

    My Gastro has upped me to two doses of Miralax a day, so I am having an early evening snack of prune juice laced with it. It’s drinkable, but certainly not a favorite.

    It’s good to hear from you again. I’ll stop by and see what you have been doing. I hope it’s better than what I have!!
