hello
can you tell me when you took the enemas and mag citrate?
Customer: replied 9 months ago.

Hi


I took the two fleet enemas yesterday and the mag citrate at 1 pm today-


 

Expert:  Dr. Natasha replied 9 months ago.
Do you feel anything at all?
Customer: replied 9 months ago.

no- not really. I was passing more gas before I took the mag citrate


 

Customer: replied 9 months ago.

by the way I went to see my PCP yesterday and got a KUB because I am so distended and have had some blood in my stool

Expert:  Dr. Natasha replied 9 months ago.
Well, you can take a laxative like ducolax- you can take 2 tablets. THis is a stimulant laxative and a glass of warm prune juice. You should have a BM within 24 hours.
If you start vomiting or have severe pain or fever, you need to see a physician right away


I hope that I provided you with excellent service.
Please leave positive feedback if I did

what does fever mean?


Also I went and got a KUB and she said I was "almost" impacted

Expert:  Dr. Natasha replied 9 months ago.
Fever is a temperature >100.4
Almost impacted means almost constipated enough to require manual removal- which is not fun.

Try the prune juice and the dulcolax. I will check in with you tomorrow, ok?


I hope that I provided you with excellent service.

But what does fever with constipation mean? because I do have a fever and some pain

Expert:  Dr. Natasha replied 9 months ago.
How high is your fever?
Customer: replied 9 months ago.

It is only 100 but I have been taking tyelenol.

Expert:  Dr. Natasha replied 9 months ago.
Fever and constipation could mean appendicitis, diverticulitis or a viral syndrome.
I would try the prune juice and the laxatives.
If you don't have a BM then I would see the doctor.
