Single bowel cleanse is necessary before a colonoscopy, but can more easily be acheived by consuming GoLytely or %00 grams of MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) the night before. There is no scientific evidence that colon hydrotherapy helps anyone other than $ 4 the therapist. ...Read more

35/m.Using sodium picosulfate from 5years.Have i got atonic colon due to overuse.Lactulose, fruits, prunes, fiber no good.Ct, colonoscopy, blood tests ok.

Add exercise also.: Atonic colon can be due to the absence of myenteric plexus or overuse of laxatives. If your colonoscopy and ct scan were normal, increased water intake, exercise and a high fiber diet will help. You had used lactulose, fruits, prunes, fiber, now add daily exercise, lots of water and stool softeners. I suppose you already see a gastroenterologist. Have you explored ibs as a possible cause ? ...Read more

Redundant colon,candidate for elective colon resection. Linzess, miralax no help. Milk of mag or Sennokot 2-3x week helps.Use instead of surgery?

Redundant colon,candidate for elective colon resection. Linzess, miralax no help. Milk of mag or Sennokot  2-3x week helps.Use instead of surgery?

Chronic constipation: Most often, surgery is only considered as a last resort. For some people, having a bowel movement 2 to 3 times per week is normal. If you are able to achieve this using milk of magnesia, then I would not consider surgery at this time. It is always possible to have complications of surgery, and in your situation, it doesn't sound absolutely necessary. Fiber and hydration are key. Good luck. ...Read more
