Thread: Bowel Program On Twice A Week

    Bowel Program On Twice A Week

    Hey, I've been injured 7 years, and at first we did my bowel program every other day. Then after a while we cut it down to Monday, Wednesday, Friday. Now, this past couple months, we've actually cut it down to Tuesdays and Fridays only. Everything is fine so far. I haven't had any complications.

    I was just wondering, are there any health concerns for doing a bowel program only twice a week?

    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    i think 2x/week cannot be healthy for your bowels/lrg intestine. much increased chance of impaction, delayed transit, incomplete emptying, cramping, spasm, roids, fissures, fistulas, bowel distention, bowel obstruction (very serious).

    i eat a moderate diet with fiber additions and am amazed at what comes out every day. two days makes me uneasy, three days i would never do.

    cant even imagine that

    I HAVE to go every day..........Sometimes even twice a day. I didnt get a bowel program while in the hospital last month for 72 hours after surgery and thought i was gonna explode.

    Cant even imagine having all that built up inside me and and only going twice a week
