Tried to get in to local PC doctor BUT they were CLOSED today!!. Yet again, another time I needed him and his office CLOSED. My oncologist is out of town and I am back in Vero for a few days. Sooo I thought I would be over this constipation thing, but not that lucky. I have taken one Dulcolax every day 100mg ; drank one serving of Miralax each day for two days and put umpteen of those infant/child glyco suppositories you know where and NOTHING. It moves down and wants to come out, but it's just way way to big and I can't pass it. Now I must have a hemroid because I have pain when it gets down there. So I went to ER today hoping for some relief and really not caring about how much pain getting that relief might cause. The ER doctor procribed the following for me.

Bottle of Magnesium Citrate to drink down (prescription strenghth) Prescription Duloclax BISACODYL pills (two of these) and a phopho soda Enemma.

Please tell me this is OK for me to take all this crap. I am just beside myself in fear to take this stuff. First I am worried it WONT break this block up and I will end up pushing it out hard - worried bout that 'tia' I supposibly had a few weeks ago and that weird incedent I had almost two weeks ago with the heat in all my limbs and hard pounding heat beat etc. I seem to be fine accept for this constipation issue. I thought it was impacted, but I guess the ER doctor didnt think it was or he would not have sent me home, right?. I am worried about my Blood meds Warfin and what affect it will have on this.

Can I go one more day to get to WPB to my other PC doctor tomorrow or should I try this stuff. You know what a worry wort I am about meds (and doctors). I am not in pain just have that urge to go all the time - only in pain when it gets to pushing this brick out - then I stop stand up and get in the tub to releave the pain. So I am OK - it;s been about 4 days for bowel movement.

Love MG
