Up to your doctor: Talking with your own doctor about this will yield more personalized results -- it looks like you've had quite an extensive workup of your GI complaints.

Hoping you and your doctor can arrive at a helpful plan. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Am i getting if my chronic constipation was treating with colace and a high fiber dietor am i prone to a bowel obstruction?

Follow the label: For now, follow the label on the docusate. Next, go see your OB doctor and ask what to do - it's going to be a long 9.5 months! make sure you are eating very healthy foods - avoid fast food, processed foods (like cheetos, frozen dinners, etc.). Eat lots of fresh veggies. Don't drink pop or fruit juice (stick to water and milk). Avoid rice and applesauce (both will constipate). Add prunes! ...Read more

Constipation: Long term laxatives are not great for the bowels.

Also don't forget to drink a lot of water to soften the bowels and fiber to keep things moving. ...Read more
