Hello John, I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.Do you know the name of the stool softener?Do they have any of following complaints;Fewer than 3 bowel movements per weekStraining Lumpy or hard stoolsSensation of incomplete defecation?
don't know name of softener. not aware of any complaints. and, as i said iv'e spent a lot of time with them; 24/7 at their lake home. have taken them and been present when they've talked to their doctor.
I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
Thanks for using Just Answer.
well, this is my suspicion. my parents have gotten weaker in the nursing home. my dad has pretty much lost the use of his legs. so, staff has had to use a mechanical lift to get him on the toilet. my mom needs to be wheel chaired and assisted on the toilet. staff has required them to wear diapers. i suspect they give them stool softners so, they eliminate in the diaper and therefore it's easier for staff to take care of their bowel movements. what is your opinion. thanks, j
