  • Getting better....

    Well, Angel's doc at first tried to blow Angel's constipation off. He just said to give her a little more time. I didn't take that for an answer. He finally followed through with the x-ray and found that she was constipated real bad. No wonder her tummy looked so big!
    So he gave her some supositories (spelling?) and Miralax. He also agreed that I should cut out dairy products. And, he said to have her eat lots of popcorn.
    It's all working. She is feeling better now. Thank goodness. She was having a hard time with even her bladder when she was constipated. And, now she isn't having accidents since she cleared a lot of that stuff out.
    Her doc want to keep her on the Miralax for a couple of months at least and keep letting her eat popcorn.

    The things kids say!

      Oh, I am so glad she is feeling better. She must have been really uncomfortable. frown

      Diagnosed August 2001

      Current IC meds: Elmiron (since 2001), Levaquin (one pill after intercourse to prevent UTIs), Effexor (for depression & anxiety)

      Past IC meds: Amitriptyline (Elavil), Hydroxyzine (Vistaril), Detrol LA, Lexapro (for depression & anxiety, but also helped my IC) (They all helped, but I was able to discontinue them.)

      I've been virtually symptom free and able to eat & drink whatever I'd like for about 8 years now.


      “We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms -- to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.” ~ Viktor Frankl

      “You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you.” ~ Brian Tracy

              Your daughter's doc sounds like a smart man.
              I second it about milk. I remember reading somewhere that even bedwetting can come from a milk allergy.
              Good luck.
