Had constipation iss for yrs, now I am pooping several times a day soft smaller amounts. 1 inch round, soft light brown 4-5 inches long is this normal?
Yes: Whatever you're doing, keep doing it. Constipation can cause a variety of deadly illnesses--especially colon cancer. Bile acids break down into potent carcinogens, if transit time is more than 24 hours, bathing the colon and lower intestines with cancer-causing poison. Keep your bowels moving regularly, and avoid colon cancer. ...Read more

Unusual: Opiates all cause constipation, and generally when they are stopped, people get diarrhea. Are you having any abdominal pain or cramping? If so, see your doctor immediately. If just constipated without pain/cramps, then I would first try a stool softener like Colace or Surfak twice a day, add milk of magnesia 2 TBLSP at night. If no results, an ounce of Miralax (polyethylene glycol) should do it. ...Read more
Unusual: Most people get constipated from hydrocodone itself, and often get diarrhea when stopping. I recommend my patients start with something mild like a stool softener (dulcolax tabs - colace or surfak) one tab twice a day, then use a mild laxative like milk of magnesia 2 tblsp at night. If that doesn't work, senna-based laxatives, magnesium citrate or MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) would be next best step. ...Read more

I hardly poop and these days can't poop like a healthy person. So i'm using an enema 3 times per week. Is it bad for my health or?
Miralax (polyethylene glycol): I recommend drinking lots of water and using miralax, (polyethylene glycol) this type of fiber works with your body and doesn't necessarily force you to use the bathroom but lets you decide when you want to go. Each person has different reactions to fiber and some can cause bloating to some while others to have the same symptoms, so it is important to try a few to see which one works best for you. ...Read more
