You can get gurgling with both gas and constipation, because your body is trying to move stool through
Colace is a stool softener
Do you feel consipated?
I feel O.K. It just makes me feel uneasy to continuously hear the gurgling. I don't have the urge to go. Yesterday, I had hard stools.
Do you feel gasey- burping or passing gas?
I have done a little of both.
A lot or a little?
Constipation is a problem that I have had for a very long time.
I would take a colace and drink prune juice (warm- 1 cup)
This is a nice soft stimulant laxative which will move things through and the colace will soften up your stool
So you think it's the constipation that is causing the gurgling and not the fact that I just ate?
It could be a combination of both, I am giving you a suggestion on how to treat it
I have been taking a cup of warm prune juice and 3 Colace pills with water once a day, everyday, starting on the day that you and I first spoke. I had a bowel movement on that Friday, and again on Saturday. I did not go on Sunday, and I have not gone yet today, so far. In the event that I might have an impacted stool, does your suggestion have a positive outlook on working against a possible impacted stool? Thank you.
Huh? I presume you are saying that you won't be online for the next hour and a half. Anyway, I plan to continue your suggestion until Friday. I just brought this up since you asked how I was doing. Thank you.
