Well, went to ED on Wednesday night and got home 3 am Thursday morning. Told that stool filled entire intestinal system and take laxative. Thursday morning did that and started going, and going and going. Thursday night started getting dry heaves and still going. Developed bad pain in right side and bloody stools (again) and hubby called off work and took me to ED AGAIN! They put me in and after much poking, prodding and tests I got results last night and got sent home. Seems entire digestive track has slowed and even after all that going, there is STILL stool in intestinal tract. UGH!! Trying not to think too far ahead or think the worst but it is difficult. So have to take Miralax daily and they gave me some percocet to deal with the pain. Didn't tell me to stop the vicodin though. I think it's probably wise not to take both at same time. I'll try their percocet and see if it works any better than the vic ES.
So anyone dealing with a totally screwed up digestive system any advice?
Didn't expect things to move in this direction or this quickly anyway. What happens when system slows so much that things don't move through or stops completely? What can I expect?
Thanks for any advice offered. Just want to prepare myself since this came on so unexpectedly fast and I'm afraid it will move farther quickly.
