Would some tissue and with liquid glycerine on it work as a laxative? It's 2am and I am desperate!
-local application?: For lubricant effect, I think you are asking about using it. You are just 26 yrs old and not sure why at this you have constipation-so significant. Do you drink enough liquids, take enough roughage in the food. When you apply liquid glycerin into the anal canal the digital stimulation itself may help to bring out some stool out. But don't try this often as it causes local br. In lining and bleed ...Read more

Doing colonoscopy prep. On second laxative and all that comes out is a bit of yellowish solid that falls to the bottom of the toilet. Was liquid before. What is it?
Stool: It must have been some of your stool which finally migrated all the way down to your anus and out of your body. Your gastroenterologist appreciates that in that he will be able to have a clear view of your entire colon because you did such a good bowel prep and he will not have to clean you out from the rear end, so to speak. ...Read more

Upper part of tummy extends, constipation daily. Bm never happens naturally only by induction with laxative. In liquid form. What could be the problem?
Laxatives: Many times chronic use of laxatives bide their own usage - that is the more you use them the more you need them. Unfortunately it can become serious enough that you need to see a GI specialist or at least a good family dr to see your way through this problem. ...Read more
Been on one day of liquids for colonoscopy, starting second day. Haven't taken laxatives yet but noticed last formed stool was green. Why might this be? Should I inform doctor/emergency? Deeper green color.
Not concerning.: Stool color can vary because of a lot of factors, most notably diet. It is generally not a concern unless the store is bloody or solid black in color, due to bleeding, and will eventually return to normal. Green stool is not usually a concern. Be sure to drink all of your prep. Good luck. ...Read more

Healthy smoothie.: Start with a nice combination of fruits. I'd like to see a source of protein to help with overall absorption and balance. Perhaps protein powder to keep the calories down. Maybe blend it in skim milk. And I usually recommend adding some psyllium husk to get back some of the fiber benefit. ...Read more
There is no "Best": Being "regular" is very important. There is no single solution for everyone. Adequate hydration (plenty of fluids), fiber, and stimulation of the colon will usually solve the problem. Magnesium helps many people. You can't "od" on magnesium, because it will cause diarrhea. Usually, 500-1, 500 mg will get you moving. Some people can handle more. Prunes are also a good stimulant. ...Read more
Laxatives, like all medications are very useful if taken as directed. Laxatives are generally intended for short term use unless you have some chronic GI condition.
It should be noted that it is possible to develop a psychological habituation to laxatives. ...Read more
No calories for days: Forces people into ketosis, i.e. burning fat, thus body fat stores reduce (like what happens to people in concentration camps; not fed or fed minimal). However, many, in response to fasting (with lots of cheap carb foods widely available) end up storing back more fat (after stopping the fast) than they lost during the fast. Thus generally, in modern USA culture, often ends up a net negative. ...Read more
