Re: constipated but still filthy

for me it's all about how you are positioned

sit down (preffably on a bed), open your legs wide, and just let it come out. never failed me

if you do get stuck, quickly cross your legs again to get the rest out

Re: constipated but still filthy

I do get constipated a few times over the year. I usually take a fleet liquid glycerin suppository (7.5 ml). Maybe 5 to 10 minutes. Laying down on a bed works better for me. I lay on my back with my knees bent. Then I just completely relax. It always work.

Re: constipated but still filthy

Oh yes, the joy of IBS-C. I use MiraLAX, a fiber supplement, and sometimes add a Senokot if needed. As my gastro MD says, it's whatever works for me since my insurance co. will not pay for the prescription pills for the IBS-C.

Re: constipated but still filthy

Hi Sophie. Sorry Your having these issues. I'm quadriplegic. And like most paralyzed people I had problems with consitpatian for years. What happens is the constipated stool gets stuck and loose stool pushes past causing bowel incontinence accidents. Getting on a bowel program can help that. I see people talking about positioning. And that too helps to release the bowel.
