Thread: sluggish bowel

  1. #11
    I have had sluggish bowels since my SCI so I take stool softeners every night. I also use the warm water enema once a week. It is horrible to live like this but gotta do what I gotta do to keep things moving.

    I noticed this big time after a confirmed uterine prolapse. I almost went to emerge twice without the ability to evacuate the bowels. Taking lactulose helped ... I'm normally a big fruit eater but it was difficult to get out this winter to keep up with that.

    Baby xlax... pedialax. NOT the gooey suppository but the liquid in the applicator. Daily, sometimes every other day. Takes effect in 1 to 10 minutes. Got my life back on track.
